(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A St. Joseph mother was sentenced Monday for the death of her baby who died while sleeping with her.


A judge sentenced Doris Koon to three years probation. She was also ordered her to complete a post conviction treatment program and not to drink alcohol.

Koon's one-month-old baby died in August of 2017. Court documents at the time said Koon was drinking before the baby's death and later woke up to find the baby underneath her.

Tuesday is looking to be another cool, and dry day. We'll see a mix of sun & clouds with below average high temperatures only into the upper 70s. Certainly going to feel like Fall!
