Brandi and Russel Bellew, Parents, Lose Children After Son Dies Due To ‘Faith Healing’

Huff post

After 16-year-old Austin Sprout lost his life when his parents, Brandi and Russel Bellew, opted for prayer instead of medical treatment, their remaining six children are now wards of the state, the Register-Guardreports.

According to the paper, the couple can still see their children under a new “in-home safety plan” which dictates a state “safety-provider” must be present during the visits, and mandates the “immediate notification” of the state Department of Human Services if any of the children have medical illnesses.

The couple also face charges of manslaughter in the second degree, according to the Associated Press.
