A couple has been arrested and charged with attempted murder in the first degree and child abuse of their own children in addition to a 24-count bill of indictment.
WIFR 23 News is reporting that Christopher Williams and his wife Kathryn are accused of using their children’s alleged conditions to benefit themselves, including an all expenses paid trip to Walt Disney World from Make-A-Wish.
The couples children were nominated for the Steven R. Stiles award from the Healing Dreams Foundation for a long history of illness including Mitochondrial disease, which causes energy production to malfunction in the body’s cells.
The charges state that the couple prevented the children from getting well to benefit from the foundational awards. Both are charged with allegedly harming their own children as well. The report filed stated the parents demanded hospice care for one of their two children and provided them medical treatments they did not need or require.
Both parents face up to 30 years in prison for attempted murder. They are currently being held on $1 million bond.
