FERGUS FALLS, Minn. - A Fergus Falls woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the death of a 6-year-old boy who was left in her care.

Forty-two-year-old Bobbie Bishop pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Justis Burland-Arnett, who was pronounced dead at Lake Region Hospital in Fergus Falls in April 2018.
