(AP) A Philadelphia couple serving 10 years' probation for the 2009 death of their toddler after they turned to prayer instead of a doctor has violated their probation now that another of their children has died.


Herbert and Catherine Schaible belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes in faith-healing


Philadelphia Judge Benjamin Lerner said at a hearing they violated the most important condition of their probation: to seek medical care for their remaining children.


Authorities have yet to file criminal charges in the death of the 8-month-old boy last week, after he suffered with diarrhea and breathing problems for days. But charges could be filed once authorities pinpoint how the baby died.


The couple is on probation after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter in 2011 in the death of their 2-year-old son, Kent, from pneumonia.
