An Alberta couple who treated their son's illness with natural remedies rather than take him to a doctor have been found not guilty in the toddler's death after a retrial.

David and Collet Stephan were tried on charges of failing to provide the necessaries of life to 19-month-old Ezekiel, who died in 2012.

Supporters in the courtroom cheered and Collet Stephan cried as she hugged her husband.

Court of Queen's Bench Justice Terry Clackson spoke to the court in Lethbridge, Alta., for only four minutes on Thursday before releasing his written decision in the judge-alone trial.

The judge ultimately sided with the defence's medical experts in finding the boy had viral not bacterial meningitis and ultimately died of a lack of oxygen.

The judge should be sacked. What an appalling decision to make

So, it's not just our Judges and Magistrates that don't live in the real World ?

Indeed mate and I find this decision appalling. Its opening up the dor more parents ignoring medical advice and medical intervention.
