CRIME AND COURT ROUNDUP: Couple who prayed, instead of getting medical help for child, hopes to avoid jail time
A Wausau area couple is expected to make their final attempt to stay out of jail this afternoon, for praying instead of getting medical help while their young daughter died. Dale and Leilani Neumann of Weston are scheduled to appear in Marathon County Circuit Court on motions for their final sentences. They were allowed to stay free while they appealed their 2009 convictions for reckless homicide. Those appeals ran out last month, when the U-S Supreme Court refused to consider the case.
