An Oklahoma couple, whose 3-year-old daughter died on Jan. 3 from cancer and had a 17-pound tumor, is facing manslaughter charges for allegedly neglecting the child.
Authorities in Lawton, Okla. responded to an unconscious toddler at a camper home. The girl was unconscious but breathing and had a 17-pound tumor, the report said.
