Neumanns denied a second trial after conviction in 2008 case

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- The Weston parents convicted of killing their 11-year-old daughter won't get a second trial.

A jury convicted Dale and Leilani Neumann of second-degree reckless homicide. Prosecutors said the couple prayed instead of taking their daughter, Kara to a doctor back in 2008.

In February, a lawyer argued Leilani's original attorney didn't present a strong enough defense due to health problems.

Dale's lawyer said jurors who heard his case were influenced when they learned of Leilani's guilty verdict.

Doctors said Kara died because her diabetes went untreated.
