PHILADELPHIA - Herbert and Catherine Schaible's faith in the laws of God put
them on a collision course with the laws of man when their 8-month-old son,
Brandon, fell ill in April.
As members of First Century Gospel Church, a Philadelphia Christian
congregation that shuns medical care as an affront to God, they turned to
prayer when Brandon became ill with what proved to be a fatal case of
Prayer was what they turned to in January 2009 when their 2-year-old son,
Kent, also died of bacterial pneumonia, a death that led to
involuntary-manslaughter convictions, 10 years' probation and a court order
to seek medical care when their seven other children got sick.
For the Schaibles' attorneys, prayer will have nothing to do with defending
what legal experts say is one of the thorniest of murder cases.
