Local officials have charged the parents of a newborn with murder after she died just hours after birth. Clackamas County, Oregon, officials say Sarah and Travis Mitchell failed to take their prematurely-born daughter, one of twins, to the hospital when she developed breathing difficulties. Mrs. Mitchell gave birth at her mother's home in Oregon City, Oregon.
The Mitchells are members of a faith-healing church, Fellowers of Christ. Two other members of the church, Sharon and Dale Hickman, who are Mrs. Mitchell's sister and brother-in-law, were convicted in the death of their child and sentenced to prison.
