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.

Summer-like weather has taken hold and will stick around for the next several days. For tonight, an isolated shower or storm is possible early on but we should dry out overnight. Lows will be mild in the upper 60s.
