A Topeka man pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter in a 2007 death in Shawnee County.

Twenty-seven-year-old Ryan Michael Thompson entered the plea in the death of 18-year-old Zachary Scholl Armold of Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Thompson was arrested May 3 for allegedly providing illegal substances that later caused a person's death. The newspaper says Armold died May 11, 2007.

As part of the plea bargain, prosecutors dropped charges of possession of narcotics with intent to sell, aggravated endangering of a child and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

Thompson will be sentenced Sept. 6.
