Cult member to plead guilty to reduced charge in baby starvation case

A member of a defunct religious cult One Mind Ministries is planning to plead guilty to a reduced charge related to the starvation death of 1-year-old Javon Thompson.

The attorney for Marcus Cobbs says he will plead guilty Friday to accessory after the fact, according to the Associated Press.

The boy’s mother and several other members of the cult were charged in connection with the boy’s death, who was allegedly starved because he would not say ‘Amen’ after meals.

A trial for the other members has been postponed until January 27.
