Hopkins parents charged in 9-year-old daughter's asthma death

A 9-year-old Hopkins girl spent a week in intensive care from an asthma attack that left her brain dead. Now the girl's parents are charged in her death, after her father failed to refill her inhaler and her mother ran a steam bath instead of rushing her to the hospital.

Anthony and Rachel Modrow both face one count of second-degree manslaughter for the alleged neglect and endangerment of their child, Amy Lynn Modrow, who they called "chicken nugget," according to her obituary.

The parents, both 34, were booked into Hennepin County jail late Wednesday and made a first court appearance Thursday. District Judge Shereen Askalani set conditional bail at $25,000 and said they would be placed on house arrest if they posted bail.
