MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) -- A former central Kansas football player has pleaded to a reduced charge in the beating death of a player from a rival college and has agreed to testify against his co-defendant.

The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/14NM0Oa ) reports 20-year-old DeQuinte Flournoy pleaded no contest Tuesday to felony aggravated battery in the Sept. 22 death of 26-year-old Brandon Brown, a defensive lineman at Tabor College.

Flournoy and fellow McPherson College football player Alton Franklin were charged with second-degree murder in Brown's death after a Sept. 16 altercation at a party in McPherson.

A third former McPherson College player testified in January that Franklin struck Brown in the face and Flournoy held Brown down.

Flournoy is expected to testify at Franklin's trial, scheduled to start Monday in McPherson.
