Slideshow: Vegan parents on trial

Joseph and Lamoy Andressohn’s aggravated manslaughter trial opened Oct. 18, 2005, in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. They were accused of starving their 6-month-old daughter to death with a vegan diet after an autopsy concluded the 7-pound, 22-inch infant died from “accidental malnutrition.” The couple and their children practiced a “living-foods lifestyle,” a diet consisting of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.
