Family who let 18-year-old rot to death sentenced to prison

    LUDLOW, Ky. (WKRC) - The people who let a boy with disabilities rot and die are going to prison.

    A judge gave Jamie Bishop eight years and Sharon and Raymond Martin seven and a half years.

    They pleaded guilty earlier this year to manslaughter in the death of Joey Bishop.

    The 18-year-old suffered from Muscular Dystrophy.

    His mother and grandparents admitted to letting him waste away in his bed in Ludlow, Kentucy.

    He developed sores that eventually killed him.
