Allowing your son to die when a simple visit to the doctor would save his life is at least negligent homicide. Praying over a boy suffering for vomiting and diarrhea is an ineffective treatment and irresponsible, I don’t care what your faith dictates. Greg and JaLea Swezey killed their son Zachery Swezey. They should be held accountable.
When he fell ill March 15, the 17-year-old Carlton boy's parents, Greg and JaLea Swezey, thought he had food poisoning. But over the next three days, they realized it was something else, perhaps the flu. He'd had a fever, and was vomiting with severe diarrhea.
They prayed while he died. What the hell? How do you live with yourself after letting your son die an agonizing death from a ruptured appendix?
The Swezey’s are members of the Mormon cult, Church of the First Born.
