Attorneys for Scientologists say a medical examiner's report exonerates them in Lisa McPherson's death.

Pinellas prosecutors are standing by their allegation that Lisa McPherson suffered severe dehydration before she died in the care of Church of Scientology staffers in Clearwater.

That alone is enough to allege "great bodily harm" and sustain a charge that the church abused McPherson, prosecutors said at an all- day hearing Wednesday that demonstrated why lawyers for both sides are calling this case one of the more unusual they"ve seen.
