Parents Charged With Manslaughter in Daughter’s Death
The religious right is all up in arms to protect even non viable fetus’s, but they don’t seem to care at all about murdering adolescent children through neglect.
An Albany couple has been charged with manslaughter in the death of their 12-year-old daughter.
Travis Rossiter, 39, and Wenona Rossiter, 37, were charged with first- and second-degree manslaughter.
Police responded to a call on Feb. 5 that the couple’s daughter Syble had died.
“They belonged to a belief system called the Church of the First Born,” said Capt. Eric Carter of the Albany Police Department. “I’ll let you do your own research.”
Last September, ABC reported on the death of 16-year-old Austin Sprout of Creswell, Ore., whose parents were members of the Church of the First Born and pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in his death.
In the Rossiters’s case, detectives investigated for several months and determined the couple withheld necessary and adequate medical attention for Syble, resulting in her death, Carter said.
