PONTOTOC COUNTY, Okla. -- An Ada woman learned her punishment for stabbing her teenage son to death this week. Connie Haines, 45, was sentenced to ten years probation on first-degree manslaughter charges.

Haines accidentally stabbed her own son in July 2007 after brandishing a knife during a domestic dispute with her husband.

Chris Carpenter, 17, later died as a result of those wounds.

Haines will also have to pay court costs and reimburse an advocacy group which donated money to pay for Carpenter's funeral.
