Willful ignorance means mother walks free in manslaughter of baby.

September 25, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Cherie Denese Nagle, 48, pled guilty to manslaughter after her 11-day-old baby boy (Reef Rippa Stone) died of extreme dehydration and severe meningitis.

Nagle walked free after Justice Joe Williams ruled that the baby’s death was not due to a lack of care or love but a lack of understanding of the baby’s gradually worsening condition.

My guess is the mother follows some kind of alternative religious or homeopathic lifestyle and shuns modern medicine, given that the baby and her other children were all born at home with no medical assistance.

In New Zealand where medical care is free for children, no baby should ever die due to a lack of medical care. The mother and her willful ignorance are 100% to blame for this needless death.
