LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – A woman accused of pushing an elderly man off a bus to his death in 2019 was sentenced Friday morning to spend 20 years in prison. Cadesha Bishop, 28, was accused of pushing 74-year-old Serge Fournier off an RTC bus causing him to hit his head. He later died from his injuries.

Bishop took a plea deal. She was originally facing a murder charge but under the deal, she pleaded guilty to abuse of an older/vulnerable person resulting in substantial mental harm or death.

According to a video from the bus, Bishop was arguing with passengers on the bus when Fournier walked past her. Fournier told Bishop to be nicer to the passengers which led to a heated exchange and her pushing him.
