Philly couple to be sentenced Wed

A couple from Philadelphia that believes in faith-healing could be going to jail for the death of their eight-month old son.

Herbert and Catherine Schaible pleaded no contest to third-degree murder in his death.

Brandon Schaible died last year and was the couple's second child to die without seeing a doctor.

The couple had a two-year-old son who died of untreated pneumonia in 2009.


The Schiables could face up to 20 years in prison.

They have seven surviving children.
