Jury Returns Guilty Verdicts In Faith-Healing Trial

Posted: Updated:

A jury has returned guilty verdicts for an Oregon City couple accused of denying medical care to their baby daughter.

 Timothy and Rebecca Wyland were charged with criminal mistreatment. Authorities filed charges against the Wylands after their baby suffered an abnormal buildup of blood vessels near her left eye that nearly left her blind.

 The Wylands are members of Oregon City-based Followers of Christ Church, a congregation that prefers prayer over traditional medicine.

 The couple lost custody of their daughter last summer. She has since improved under court-ordered medical care.
