Herbert and Catherine Schaible Jailed at Last:

Parents charged with murder after they allegedly chose prayer over medical care for their sick son have been denied bail by a Philadelphia judge.

Herbert Schaible, 45, and his wife Catherine, 44, were charged with third-degree murder earlier this week after their seven-month-old son Brandon died of bacterial pneumonia in April.

If convicted, the Schaibles face seven to 14 years in prison or more. The couple had previously been convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2009 for failing to prevent another son, two-year-old Kyle, from dying from pneumonia.
