A Utah court has upheld charges against a couple whose child died in 2006 while sleeping with them.
I would have to know more about this story before I could form an decent opinion. Having lost two babies to co-sleeping looks very damning - it does make you wonder if there is more going on?
But to lose two babies thru no fault of your own and then be charged with murder on top of that? I just cannot imagine the grief...

SAD SITUATION. IF THEY DID NOTHING WRONG OR IF THEY DID. ITS JUST SO SAD FOR THE CHILDREN!!!!!
Not enough evidence to really give a good opinion of the situation, but if I were in their shoes, I wouldn't cosleep a second time. I'm a paranoid person as it is who will not cosleep with this child (which is my first), but I have nothing against cosleeping. From my understanding of cosleeping, doesn't the baby usually sleep in their own bed next to the mother? That's the only way I really heard of, not in between the parents because the risk is so high.
I have seen cases before where this tragedy has struck a family more than once. So I googled, and found that there is a tendency for SIDS to run in families.
It would make sense if it was to do with jaw morphology, and breathing. Just as sleep apnea, and other breathing disorders like snoring will run in families.
I would not be hasty on giving an opinion on this one, and I certainly can imagin e how distraught the parents must be, and that they get good advice about such family tendencies.
