The husband of the central Wisconsin woman accused of praying while her daughter died of undiagnosed diabetes is among nearly 50 possible witnesses in the mother's homicide trial.
District Attorney Jill Falstad read off a list of potential witnesses today that include Dale Neumann, Leilani Neumann's husband, other members of their family and four doctors.
Leilani Neumann is charged with second-degree reckless homicide in her daughter Madeline's death on Easter 2008. Prosecutors claim the 11-year-old the girl was too weak to speak, eat, drink or walk and the parents had a legal duty to take her to a doctor.
The mother has said the family believes that healing comes from God and that she never expected her daughter to die.
About 90 potential jurors were called to the courthouse today for jury selection.
