A Texas judge has sentenced parents Qwalion Busby and Marquita Johnson to six months in prison and 10 years of probation after their baby died in December 2015 from complications caused by an ear infection.

Busby and Johnson were arrested in May 2016 by Bexar County Sheriff's deputies and charged with injury to a child – serious bodily injury by omission in connection with the death of their 7-month-old baby, Naeem Busby, after authorities learned that Busby and Johnson had attempted to treat the baby's ear infection solely with "holistic" methods.
