The murder trial of a Calgary couple accused in the starvation death of their son will resume next month.
59 year Emil Radita and his 54 year old wife Rodica Radita are charged with first degree murder in the 2013 death of their 15 year old son Alex.
Before adjourning for summer the trial heard Alex’s family refused to accept their son had diabetes and failed to treat the disease before he was hospitalized near death in B.C. in 2003. B.C’s child welfare services lost touch with the family when they moved to Alberta.
Alex weighed just 37 pounds, was wearing a diaper and had ulcers all over his body when he died.
The trial resumes September 12th.
