In your first photo - is that how you found the printer? Bed still at 220 but not printing? If so I'm thinking option 2 above - for some reason it crashed. If it didn't crash it should have turned off heat.
Also is it possible that you pulled the SD card out of your computer before it finished copying the file? When you slice, save to hard drive and *then* copy to SD card. Then take the card out, put it back into the PC and check that the files are still identical (for example with winmerge - a great free utility).
I don't think upgrading cura is going to help. Let's put that aside.
I see two possibilities:
1) The slicer isn't slicing your whole model. You can verify this by looking at your model in "preview" mode. At the top of the display. Then scroll through every layer and make sure it is printing where you think it should. If not then DON'T print it - it has to look correct (prints all layers) in preview mode or there is no point in actually printing.
2) Something might be wrong with your printer. I don't know the monoprice printers well but I would concentrate on the power module that converts house power into printer power (I assume 12V to 24V - something around that). Some of these power supplies will overload and shutdown but only for 1/4 second or so and then your printer reboots and when you come back it's happy and ready to print and doesn't realize it lost power part way through the print.
One test for this is what does the display show when it stops. Does it say something like "print complete" or is it at the start screen when you first power up? Does it keep the bed hot (indicating the printer is in a crashed state of some sort)? Or did it act like the print actually finished properly?
