LAWTON, Okla. - An Oklahoma couple are facing manslaughter charges after their 3-year-old daughter died of cancer.
According to the Lawton Constitution, the Comanche County Sheriff’s Department responded Jan. 3 to a report of an unconscious child at a Lawton camper home. The girl, who had a 17-pound tumor, was taken to an area hospital and later died, authorities said.
Deputies allege that the girl's parents, Bonnie Beth Mills-Lilly, 42, and Henry Clarence Lilly III, 49, failed to provide medical care for her, ultimately causing her death. They were arrested and charged with first-degree manslaughter, the Constitution reported.
If convicted, Mills-Lilly and Lilly each would face a minimum of four years in prison, the Constitution reported.
