Crazy Protestant Heretics: Faith Healers Sarah and Travis Lee Mitchell Sentenced Seven Years For Death of New-Born Daughter...

Faith-healing couple who prayed and anointed their daughter with oil, rather than getting medical help after her premature birth, are sentenced to almost seven years in jail

An Oregon couple entered a guilty plea on Monday to counts of negligent homicide and criminal mistreatment in the death of their newborn daughter. Sarah and Travis Lee Mitchell, who are members of a church that shuns traditional medicine in favor of prayer and anointing the sick with oils, were each sentenced to six years and eight months, with credit for 13 months in custody awaiting trial and credit for good behavior. The two had originally been charged with murder by neglect and criminal mistreatment in the 2017 death of the premature baby, who they chose to not seek medical help for after her premature birth. Ginnifer Mitchell died on March 5, 2017 from complications resulting from her premature birth. An autopsy later revealed that the child's lungs appeared to be 'airless'' and she suffered from acute respiratory distress syndrome. Source
