Sarah’s sister was sentenced to 6 years in prison in 2011 after refusing to giveĀ herĀ child medical care, instead wanting healing by faith.

The Mitchell’s daughter was dead within hours of being born. Nobody called 911, among all the church members, family, and 3 midwives at the house.

The Mitchells are members of the Followers of Christ Church.
