No jail time for Bowman mother in baby's drowning death

DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) -- A Bowman woman who pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the drowning death of her baby in a toilet will not serve prison time if she stays out of trouble.

Judge William Herauf on Tuesday gave 42-year-old Stephanie Lindstrom a one-year suspended sentence. She will be on probation for five years.

Lindstrom initially had faced a murder charge but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge in February. Prosecutors at the time said medical information showed Lindstrom was most likely unconscious when the baby died in July 2013 after Lindstrom gave birth in the bathroom, and it would be difficult to pursue a murder case.
