CALGARY - A man and woman charged in the death of their 15-year-old son made a brief appearance in court Thursday, but it will be weeks before their case begins to make its way through the legal system.
Rodica Radita, 51, and Emil Marian Radita, 62, of Calgary have been charged with first-degree murder.
Police have said their son, Alexandru Radita, died of a bacterial infection stemming from neglect and starvation due to Type 1 diabetes.
They allege his parents did not provide him with proper medical treatment and, when his health declined, confined him to his room.
