Final arguments in trial over child meningitis death

An Alberta man whose son died of meningitis has told a court in Lethbridge that the Crown has failed to prove he and his wife were responsible. David Stephan and his wife, Collet, are charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life to 19-month-old Ezekiel in 2012. Stephan, who is representing himself, said in his final arguments that evidence suggests a failure to properly intubate his son by medical professionals is the real reason Ezekiel died. It's the second trial for the couple after the Supreme Court overturned the conviction a year ago. (The Canadian Press)
