The Weston prayer death father will take the stand in his own defense. Dale Neumann plans to testify today in his reckless homicide trial – a day after jurors saw a taped police interview in which he said God would heal his sick daughter. Neumann said he refused advice to seek medical help for 11-year-old Kara because he and his wife are people of faith and trust the Lord for everything.
The judge told Neumann he isn't required to testify and can change his mind before he takes the stand. The defense will also call the man behind an Internet ministry whom the Neumanns turned to for emergency prayer help before resting their case.
