    Bobbi, a 3 year old girl has a severe fever. Her parents believe that taking her to the hospital will not help and only cost unnecessary money. Instead, they believe that an ancient practice of “starving” the fever out of the child will work. They starve Bobbi, intending to help her. Instead, Bobbi dies from starvation. Can the parents be charged with homicide given their mental state? Did parents owe a duty?


    The parents absolutely owed a duty to their child because the parent child RELATIONSHIP creates a duty. They can be charged with homicide for their actions - likely criminal negligence.
