North Dakota woman sentenced to 6½ years in prison for stabbing death of boyfriend's cousin


BISMARCK, North Dakota — A North Dakota woman has been sentenced to 6½ years in prison for the stabbing death of her boyfriend's cousin.

Morning Star Brown, of Fort Yates, was originally charged with second degree murder and assault with a dangerous weapon for the March 2013 death of Jarrett Two Bear. She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities say Brown stabbed Two Bear during an argument at his Fort Yates home. He died on the way to a Bismarck hospital.

A federal public defender was not immediately available for comment.
