    A Philadelphia couple who believe in faith healing over medicine and have had two children die of pneumonia can’t post bail before a hearing Friday. This year, the family lost a child after refusing to provide him with medical care. But it’s not the first time that Herbert and Catherine Schaible have come under scrutiny for denying life-saving health services to one of their children.

    The two are charged with third-degree murder in the April death of their 8-month-old son, Brandon. Previously, the Schaibles were convicted of involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment after 2-year-old Kent died in 2009 and were ordered afterward to get their children medical care. Considering that this was part of their probation deal, the notion that another child was denied care could land them 14 years in prison — or more.
