A Joplin woman who admits she’s responsible of the alcohol poisoning death of an 11-year-old has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.

The woman, Linda Petrait, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and felony child endangerment in October rather than face a trial that could have brought a conviction and harsher sentence. 

Her boyfriend is scheduled for trial next month. Investigators say the two had been playing a drinking game with the boy while he stayed with them.
