(May 20) -- A Las Vegas woman is charged with murder Thursday night because police say she didn't give her 11-year-old diabetic daughter the insulin she needed to stay alive. Metro believes Ariel Botzet had diabetic testing equipment and insulin at her disposal, and neither was used in the days before her death on February 9.
The District Attorney David Roger blames Ariel's mother. "The mother either purposely abused her daughter by not paying attention to her insulin needs or neglected to pay attention."
Ariel's mother, Cheryl Botzet, contends the death was the result of the disease; not neglect, not murder. Herb Sachs is her attorney. "There was no premeditation, no deliberation, no intention, there was no killing."
"Certainly we see children presented for medical care where there's been a remarkable delay in seeking care." Doctor Neha Mehta sees medical neglect cases frequently at Sunrise Hospital. For some families a chronic illness, such as diabetes, becomes routine." As children grow older in their pre-teen and teen years there's an expectation they can manage their own illness."
"The diabetes will take control of them and it doesn't take long for that to become a fatal situation." Ted Garland has been diabetic for 35 years. "A day without insulin is extremely painful." Ted manages his illness. His twin brother Todd didn't and died five years ago. He sees history repeating itself with Ariel Botzet.
D.A. David Roger doesn't want to see it happen again. "We reviewed this carefully with all of our prosecutors and we felt that there was sufficient evidence to go forward with charges."
An arrest warrant has been issued for Cheryl Botzet. She is not in police custody Thursday night. Her attorney Herb Sachs tells Eyewitness News she plans to surrender to Metro detectives Friday morning.
The death of an 11-year-old diabetic has been ruled a homicide by the coroner's office because of medical neglect. Charges have not been filed against the mother. But the thought that she could be charged has stuck fear into the hearts of other parents of diabetic kids. More>>
