More recently, MEAWW reported a case involving a San Diego-based church leader who was arrested on charges of three counts of willful and cruel treatment of a child, three acts of torture, and one crime of murder. Leticia McCormack played a significant role in the Rock Church megachurch that NFL player Miles McPherson founded and directed in San Diego.

Late in August, upon responding to a complaint of a disturbed youngster at a Spring Valley home, San Diego police officers met Arabella McCormack. Leticia was the foster parent of Arabella, who had bruised all over and had been subjected to "severe levels of malnourishment," according to a police spokesman. Sadly, the 11-year-old died after being hurriedly taken to a hospital. Following Arabella's passing, Leticia was arrested.
