John and Katherine Snyder, who adopted several special needs children from China, have been accused of starving the boy between September 1 and October 5.

Prosecutors alleged that Katherine “willfully caused Adam’s death,” Law & Crime reported.

Coroners said he died from “blunt force trauma to the head,” according to court documents viewed by WCPO.

The nature of Adam’s death meant the parents lost custody of their four other adopted children and their daughter.

But charges were not brought until years later.

Records also showed that “widespread acute bronchopneumonia” had also contributed to Adam’s death.

However, the Snyders contested the coroner’s verdict when they filed two lawsuits in 2019 and 2020.

They claimed, “Three different experts have independently concluded that the manner of death is not homicide.”

In 2020, they claimed medical evidence showed Adam died of natural causes.

And they claimed coroners made “several errors” in their decision.

In the lawsuit, the Snyders said their reputation was “damaged and sullied.”

The couple were arrested in New York while visiting their other children.
