DETROIT - A woman will spend time in prison in connection with a shooting outside a docked Detroit riverboat.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Circuit Court Judge Megan Brennan sentenced Latoiya Mitchell-Thomas on Monday to one to five years in prison.

Six riverboat passengers were wounded in August 2012 after a fight aboard the Detroit Princess between a woman and Mitchell-Thomas and her husband Michael Thomas.

Authorities say 28-year-old Mitchell-Thomas fired into a crowd from a car after passengers left the boat. Her husband got 2 years' probation at his March sentencing for felonious assault.

Michael Thomas also was shot.

Charges were dismissed last month against a woman charged in his shooting.
