FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A North Texas woman has been sentenced to probation in the death of her elderly mother, whose emaciated body was found in their apartment three years ago.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1vXXnee ) 58-year-old Bonnie Ann Cupples of Euless was sentenced to 10 years of probation on Tuesday. Authorities say 77-year-old Bonnie Lee Cupples weighed 86 pounds when they found her body. Her death was ruled a homicide due to malnutrition, dehydration and grave bedsores.

Bonnie Ann Cupples pleaded guilty in May to serious bodily injury to the elderly by omission.
