COLUMBUS, Kan. (AP) -- A southeast Kansas man was sentenced to five years in prison for selling a drug that led to another man's overdose death.

Thirty-five-year-old David Tirrell of Scammon was sentenced Wednesday in Cherokee County for involuntary manslaughter. He pleaded guilty in January in the July 2012 death of 22-year-old Jordan Krokroskia, of Baxter Springs. He was initially charged with felony murder.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/W5HCXC ) Krokroskia, a student at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, died of a drug overdose.

Tirrell admitted in January that he sold a Fentanyl patch to Krokroskia, who was found dead at his home. An autopsy showed he died from Fentanyl intoxication.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid roughly 100 times more powerful than morphine.
