Jury Selection Continues Friday for Father in Prayer Death Case

Jury selection will continue Friday morning for a father accused of second-degree reckless homicide for praying instead of seeking medical help for his dying daughter.

Dale Neumann, 47, was charged after the 2008 death of eleven-year-old Madeline Neumann from undiagnosed diabetes.

A jury convicted the girl’s mother, Leilani Neumann, of the same charge in May. She awaits sentencing in October and faces up to 25 years in prison.

Lawyers piecing together the jury for the faith-healing trial for a town of Weston man quizzed potential jurors Thursday on their own religious beliefs and ability to be impartial jurors.

Dale Neumann, 47, is charged with second-degree reckless homicide in connection with the March 2008 death of his 11-year-old daughter, Madeline Kara Neumann.

Neumann and his wife, Leilani Neumann, chose to pray for their daughter’s recovery from complications of diabetes. Prosecutors say the Neumanns should have recognized Kara, as the girl was known, was seriously ill and should have been taken to a doctor.

Prosecutors, Dale Neumann’s attorney, Jay Kronenwetter, and Marathon County Circuit Court Judge Vincent Howard will spend today finalizing the jury for the weeklong trial.
