Wausau parents sentenced today for role in diabetic daughter's death
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

A Wausau area couple will find out this afternoon how long their sentences will be for letting their diabetic daughter die while they prayed for help.

Dale and Leilani Neumann were both convicted of second-degree reckless homicide in separate trials this summer.

But they'll be sentenced together in a proceeding that starts at 1:30 p.m. in Marathon County Circuit Court.

Both face up to 25 years in prison, and they're expected to appeal their convictions.

The Neumanns prayed instead of calling a doctor to help their daughter Kara, 11, who died on Easter Sunday of last year from complications of her diabetes.
