    Meet with An Oregon couple who prayed and rubbed olive on their dying son following a home birth rather than call 9/11 and seek help continued to serve 6 years in prison each after a judge upheld their murder conviction. Dale and Shannon Hickman both around 30 years of age, were both convicted in 2011 of second-degree man-slaughtering for the death of their son, David, who died 9 hours after his home birth in 2009. David was born 2 months early at his grandmother’s home with not fully formed lungs, and died after having problem of breathing and turning blue. The Hickman’s-members of a controversial faith-healing church in Oregon had appealed their sincerity, on the grounds that the prosecution had the burden to prove the couple knew their religious beliefs would cause the death of their child. But the plea was rejected by the Oregon Supreme Court. Last week a judge rejected an appeal made by the couple and reiterated that they could have done more to try and save their son.
