SIOUX FALLS | A woman accused of leaving the body of a shooting victim in a rural Minnehaha County ditch has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Kelsey Roubideaux was sentenced Tuesday for accessory to a felony for helping dispose of the body of Lakendrick Thornton last September.

The Argus Leader says charges of first-degree manslaughter and possession of a controlled substance were dropped.
