A couple who prayed and rubbed olive oil on their dying son rather than calling 911 have been sentenced to more than six years behind bars.

Dale and Shannon Hickman, both 26, were convicted of manslaughter in September for the death of their son, David.

The baby boy was born two months early at his grandmother’s home and died nine hours later when he had trouble breathing and turned blue.

On Monday, a judge told the couple, who are members of a controversial Oregon faith-healing church, that they could have done more to save their baby.
