ATTLEBORO — The bizarre case of the Attleboro religious sect in which a sect baby was starved to death because his parents believed they were fol lowing orders from God will be featured Sunday night on the “Dateline NBC” news magazine show.

The program, billed as a “Dateline-Court TV exclusive” was scheduled to air from 7-9 p.m. on NBC affiliates Channel 10 in Providence and Channel 7 in Boston, according to Allison Orr, a Dateline producer.

The Attleboro religious sect known as “The Body” made national news when authorities began investigating the disappearance of two sect children in November 1999.
