1 Mind Ministries cult member withdraws guilty plea in child’s death

Javon Thompson A former member of a religious cult backed out of a plea deal Friday and will face trial on charges that he and others starved a toddler to death because the boy refused to say “Amen” after meals.

Marcus A. Cobbs, 22, had agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of accessory after the fact. But his attorney abruptly withdrew the plea after a dispute with prosecutors over the conditions of his release.

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

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