Woman sentenced to 5 years in jail for starving a child to death



Bismarck, North Dakota – A North Dakota woman has been sentenced to five years in jail for allegedly letting an infant under her care starve to death two years ago.

As part of a deal with the prosecution, Paige Howling Wolf, 27, of Parshall, entered a guilty plea in December on charges of involuntary manslaughter as well as three counts of child negligence.

In June of 2020, authorities and medical workers came to a house in Parshall after receiving a report of a baby who was unresponsive.

The United States Attorney’s Office said that an autopsy done on the child showed that they had been malnourished for a long time.

According to the authorities, four other children were removed from Howling Wolf, and three of them tested positive for methamphetamine in their systems.
