SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A judge has suspended the prison sentence of a Sioux City woman serving 10 years for selling synthetic marijuana that caused the death of another teen.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2c1rxzf ) that District Judge Patrick Tott on Wednesday suspended 19-year-old Rose Mouw’s remaining prison term and placed her on four years’ probation.

Mouw was sentenced in May after pleading guilty in Woodbury County to involuntary manslaughter and delivery of a controlled substance.

Mouw admitted to buying the synthetic marijuana in Nebraska, then selling it to 18-year-old Austin McCloud, who was a senior at West High School in Sioux City. He died in April 2015 after smoking the drug with three other boys, who were also hospitalized, but recovered.
