MIAMI – A Florida mother, who says she fed her child a vegan diet, has been found guilty of first-degree murder after her child died from starvation.
Sheila O'Leary and her husband, Ryan Patrick O'Leary, were indicted in December 2019 for abusing and neglecting their four children.
Their 18-month-old son died of malnutrition and dehydration that same year.
The couple reportedly told police they are vegans and only eat raw fruits and vegetables.
Now, the mother is facing a life sentence with no chance of getting out of prison.
Her sentencing is scheduled for July 25.
Ryan O'Leary is expected to go to trial later this year.
