I'm sure Ma and Pa Kettle will be haunted, alright. So much so that they balked at telling the police and the medical professionals what kind of drug the child may have taken.

I am not familiar with this case and have not heard of it prior to this article. But from what is stated here, it sounds like a tragic accident that the parents will be haunted with for life. From what is said here, it sounds like this father had taken precautions to prevent this in the past. I am very sorry for the family that has to live with this, and not convinced that the parents should be prosecuted.

Of what benefit could a new trial possible be? This was a horrible, horrible tragedy; the repercussions from the child's death will forever haunt these parents. What worse torment is there than to know you are responsible for your own baby's demise.

"Attorneys failed to redact certain information from medical records before providing them to jury members, who read the information which was to have been removed."

Heaven forbid the jury receive ALL the information.
