Judge allows Wausau couple to visit California relatives

A judge is letting a Wausau area couple visit relatives in California, before they're sentenced in October in the death of their 11-year-old daughter.

Dale and Leilani Neumann of Weston were each convicted of reckless homicide for praying, instead of getting medical help for Kara Neumann's diabetes.

Wednesday, Marathon County Circuit Judge Vincent Howard changed the conditions of the Neumanns' bonds, so they can make a month-long visit to California.

They'll visit relatives, including Leilani Neumann's ailing grandmother.

Both are free on signature bonds after Dale Neumann was convicted last weekend, and Leilani was convicted in May.

Both will be sentenced together on Oct. 6, and they face up to 25 years in prison.
