(KSL News) There's a resolution in a case in which a mother was prosecuted criminally after her daughter died of meningitis.
Nine-year-old Rachel Bundy died nearly two years ago in March 2005. Police got involved because they found evidence the girl's mother used alternative methods of treating her instead of taking her to a medical doctor or hospital.
Terece Bundy, Defendant: "If I would have ever thought or knew the seriousness of what Rachel had, I would have had her into the ER immediately. I had no idea she had spinal meningitis."
Donna Kelly, prosecutor: "We filed it because we believe it was neglect. We still believe it was neglect, but the resolution is appropriate."
As soon as Bundy completes a class on nutrition, the charges will be dropped. Prosecutors say they are concerned for Bundy's two other children.
