TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas man was sentenced to five years in prison for the death of a man who was shot when he opened the door to his Topeka apartment.

Gill had originally been charged with first-degree murder in Muhammad's death in January 2007. He pleaded guilty last month to involuntary manslaughter in a plea deal.
