We use the method of light-cone sum rules to study decay properties of $P$-wave bottom baryons belonging to the $SU(3)$ flavor $\mathbf{6}_F$ representation. In Ref.~\cite{Cui:2019dzj} we have studied their mass spectrum and pionic decays, and found that the $\Sigma_{b}(6097)$ and $\Xi_{b}(6227)$ can be well interpreted as $P$-wave bottom baryons of $J^P = 3/2^-$... In this paper we further study their decays into ground-state bottom baryons and vector mesons. We propose to search for a new state $\Xi_b({5/2}^-)$, that is the $J^P = 5/2^-$ partner state of the $\Xi_{b}(6227)$, in the $\Xi_b({5/2}^-) \to \Xi_b^{*}\rho \to \Xi_b^{*}\pi\pi$ decay process. Its mass is $12 \pm 5$~MeV larger than that of the $\Xi_{b}(6227)$. read more
