Jeffrey and Marci Beagley prayed while their son died ... and are now facing criminal charges.
A 16-year-old boy in Oregon died of bladder complications this summer. Officials say his death would have been easily preventable if he'd seen a doctor, but his parents allegedly wouldn't allow it. The family's church, Followers of Christ Church, relies on prayer instead of medical care. Yesterday, his parents turned themselves in and are now facing charges of criminally negligent homicide.
Shockingly, Neal Beagley, wasn't the only child in the family to die due to lack of medical care this year. His 15-month-old cousin Ava died in March of bacterial pneumonia. In that case, too, the medical examiner ruled that death could've been prevented with a simple medical procedure.
Do you think the parents are guilty?
