FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fort Totten women convicted eight years ago in a crash that killed one of her children has been sentenced to federal prison for abusing another child.

Thirty-one-year-old Alesia Shaw was sentenced to serve eight months in prison for child abuse or neglect. U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Shaw will be on supervised release for three years following her prison time.

Shaw was accused of being under the influence of drugs and abusing a child at the Spirit Lake Casino in June 2013, and of driving a vehicle while drunk with a child as a passenger last May.

Purdon’s office says Shaw earlier was sentenced to two years in prison for a 2006 involuntary manslaughter conviction after she crashed a vehicle while driving drunk and killed her 17-month-old child.
