Cult told mother to starve her baby son

A WOMAN who starved her year-old son to death at the behest of a religious cult leader has been given a sentence that won't require her to serve any more jail time. Cult leaders told Ria Ramkissoon not to feed her son, Javon Thompson, when he did not say "Amen" during a mealtime prayer.

She was handed a suspended sentence and five years' probation at a Baltimore court.
