An Albany couple facing manslaughter charges appeared in court on Friday morning, and were scheduled for a final resolution conference on Feb. 19.

Travis and Wenona Rossiter are accused of not providing adequate medical care for their 12-year-old daughter, who died in February.

They are members of the Church of the First Born, a fundamentalist sect that believes in faith healing rather than medical treatment.

The court set a deadline of Feb. 12 for discovery, motions and independent medical testing in the case.

More than 15 people were in attendance to support the Rossiters during the hearing.
