LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on charges against an herbalist in the death of a 13-year-old diabetic boy (all times local):

5:05 p.m.

A lawyer for an herbalist charged in the death of a 13-year-old diabetic Los Angeles boy who was treated with herbs says his client had nothing to do with the boy's death.

Attorney Sanford Perliss says Timothy Morrow has never been in trouble in his life and is not guilty of the charges.

The city attorney's office has charged Morrow with practicing medicine without a license and child abuse causing a death.

City Attorney Mike Feuer says the boy's mother met Morrow at his seminars about herbs.

Feuer says Morrow told the parents to use herbal oils instead of insulin after the boy became semi-comatose. The boy, who is identified in court papers as Edgar L., died the next day.

Morrow faces up to two years in jail if convicted of the misdemeanors.

Los Angeles prosecutors have charged an herbalist in the 2014 death of a diabetic 13-year-old boy he treated with oils.

City Attorney Mike Feuer said Wednesday that Timothy Morrow practiced medicine without a license and committed child abuse causing death.

Feuer says Morrow began treating the boy after his mother attended Morrow's seminars.

Feuer says Morrow told the parents to use herbal oils instead of insulin after the boy became semi-comatose. The boy, who is only identified in court papers as Edgar L., died the next day.

The medical examiner determined the boy would have survived if he received proper medical care.

A message left for Morrow at his herbal product company was not immediately returned.

Morrow faces up to two years in jail if convicted of the misdemeanors.
