Second trial to start for Alberta couple in son's meningitis death

Second trial to start for Alberta couple in son's meningitis death LETHBRIDGE, Alta. — A new trial is to begin for an Alberta couple who used homemade remedies instead of seeking medical help for their toddler who died of bacterial meningitis. A jury in 2016 found David and Collet Stephan guilty of failing to provide the necessaries of life for 19-month-old Ezekiel. The Alberta Court of Appeal upheld the ruling, but the Supreme Court of Canada overturned the convictions and ordered a second trial. Court heard

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. — The medical examiner who did an autopsy on a 19-month-old boy says there was no suggestion a lack of oxygen had anything to do with the child's death.

David and Collet Stephan are on trial in Lethbridge, Alta., on a charge of failing to provide the necessaries of life for their son Ezekiel.

Dr. Bamidele Adeagbo told court on Monday that Ezekiel clearly died of bacterial meningitis and a lung infection in March 2012.

David Stephan, who's representing himself, pointed out today that the first ambulance that tended to his son was missing key equipment, so his son was without oxygen for almost nine minutes.

Adeagbo said he tested the child's brain tissue and there was no indication that he had been without oxygen.

The defence is challenging the pathologist's qualifications to testify as an expert witness.

It is the second trial for the Stephans. A jury found them guilty in 2016, but the Supreme Court overturned the convictions last year and ordered a new trial. This one is before a judge alone.
