A religious group accused of killing an eight-year-old girl believed “God would heal” her diabetes after they withheld life-saving insulin, a judge has heard.

The group of six men and eight women, including the girl’s parents, refused to enter pleas to either murder or manslaughter in Brisbane Supreme Court today.

Elizabeth Struhs died at the family home in Toowoomba, west of Brisbane, on January 7, 2022 after her parents and 12 others allegedly withheld her diabetes medication for six days.

Instead, they prayed next to her and did not alert authorities as the girl’s health deteriorated, police alleged.
Elizabeth died while lying on a mattress on the tiled floor of the downstairs living area in her family’s Rangeville home on January 8.
Crown prosecutor Caroline Marco said Elizabeth had been “suffering for days” due to insulin withdrawal.
