OR v. WORTHINGTON (2009)

Carl and Raylene Worthington are charged with manslaughter in the death of their 15-month-old daughter, Ava. Prosecutors say Ava failed to flourish through most of her life because of a cyst on her neck, which contributed to her fatal pneumonia. The Worthingtons, who are members of the Followers of Christ, relied on prayer instead of medical care for Ava's condition. The trial is the first under a 10-year-old Oregon law that bars legal defenses based on religious practices in most abuse cases.
