SARASOTA, Fla. — A couple convicted of killing a diabetic daughter by withholding medical aid on religious grounds were placed on probation today and ordered to get a doctor for their other children.

William and Christine Hermanson were convicted in April of third-degree murder and felony child abuse in the 1986 death of their daughter Amy, 7, from untreated juvenile diabetes.

Hermanson, a 42-year-old former banker and his 38-year-old wife, a music school operator, said they will appeal the conviction and sentence. They had faced up to seven years in prison.
