HERBERT AND Catherine Schaible don't object to the city providing their seven surviving children with immunizations and other medical care, their attorneys said in court yesterday.
The Rhawnhurst couple are being investigated for the April death of their 8-month-old son, Brandon. The child died at home after becoming ill days earlier with breathing problems and diarrhea.
Instead of calling a doctor, the parents prayed for their son, just as they did in 2009 when another son died.
The Schaibles have not been charged in Brandon's death because the Medical Examiner's Office has not yet determined a cause of death, Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore told Common Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner during a status hearing.
