Parents’ Murder Conviction for Neglect Upheld
The Georgia Supreme Court upheld the murder convictions of an Atlanta couple. The parents had been found guilty by a jury in 2007 for malice murder, involuntary manslaughter, felony murder, and cruelty to children. The incident is from 2004, when the parents took their 6 week infant to the hospital for breathing problems. The infant boy died at the hospital and doctors determined the cause of death to be extreme malnourishment or starvation. The baby weighed 3.5 lbs. Police were sent to the home of the couple and found empty cartons of soy milk. The prosecutors alleged that the couple had intentionally neglected their child.
