Chippewa County Woman Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison for Manslaughter

A Chippewa County woman was sentenced to 30 years in prison for manslaughter, according to a Chippewa County prosecuting attorney.

This sentence comes from a Michigan State Police case from November 1, 2020 where a local man was found dead after ingesting methamphetamine. MSP found that Knight was not only the one to give him the drugs, but also taught him how to use it.

Knight was sentenced Wednesday for manslaughter with habitual 3rd notice. Court documents says Knight was previously convicted of delivering drugs four times in Chippewa County. Each time she went to jail or rehab.

Knight will be eligible to see a parole board in seven years.
