Facing criminal charges in ‘faith healing’ death of daugher
Dale and Leilani Neumann, who own the Monkey Mo Coffee shop in Weston, owe more than $6,000 in rent, according to court documents.
The Neumanns were charged with second-degree reckless homicide following the March 23 death of their 11-year-old daughter, Madeline Kara Neumann. They chose to pray for her recovery rather than seek professional medical help, according to prosecutors.

In the suit, the management company is asking for payment of the $6,300, interest on the amount due, double damages for failure to pay the debt or leave the property by Sept. 14, a judgment granting eviction and restitution and payment of legal costs.
The Neumanns were charged with second-degree reckless homicide after the March 23 death of their daughter, Madeline Kara Neumann.
The Neumanns began struggling to pay the $1,840 monthly rent soon after Kara’s death when the shop was closed for eight days.
A damages hearing in the small claims case is scheduled for Dec. 9.
