Man pleads no contest in accident that killed 2

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A former Kansas State student has pleaded no contest to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in an accident that left two people dead and four injured.

Twenty-five-year-old Miles Theurer, of Wellington, entered the plea Tuesday in an agreement that included dropping two counts of aggravated battery.

Theurer will be sentenced June 17 for the May 2012 accident on Kansas 18 two miles from Manhattan that killed Elizabeth Young and Micheal Stanley. Theurer and three of his passengers were injured.

Prosecutors say Theurer was drunk and driving the wrong way on the highway when he ran head-on into a car driven by Young.

KMAN reports ( ) authorities say Theurer's blood alcohol content at the time of the accident was .190.
