Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-371.1(B)(1) does not require a showing of actual injury or death. Rather, it proscribes conduct that is so “gross, wanton and culpable” as to demonstrate a “reckless disregard” for the child’s life. Such reckless disregard can be shown by conduct that subjects a child to a substantial risk of serious injury, as well as to a risk of death, because exposure to either type of risk can endanger the child’s life.
