The trial of a couple charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life for their son resumes Tuesday in Lethbridge.
David and Collet Stephan are on trial for a second time for allegedly failing to provide the necessaries of life to their son Ezekiel in 2012.
The couple treated the child with alternative therapies before eventually calling 911, but he died in hospital.
Stephan testified he and his wife, Collet, thought it was possible Ezekiel had contacted viral meningitis.
They were originally found guilty by a jury but the Supreme Court ordered a new trial last year.
Defence lawyer Jason Demers has applied to have the charges dismissed.
The court will hear arguments about admitting evidence from medical examiner Doctor Bamidele Adegabo.
