Joseph and Lamoy Andressohn: Vegan Couple on Trial
 
 
Joseph and Lamoy Andressohn's aggravated manslaughter trial opened Oct. 18, 2005, in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. They are 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 Andressohns were also charged with child neglect for malnourishing their four other children, who were also smaller than 99 percent of average children their age. They faced up to 50 years in prison if convicted.
