WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man must serve at least three years in prison for his role in an Arkansas man’s death during a 2013 robbery at a rental house.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1xHpKVS ) reports 21-year-old Orville T. Smith had pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and other charges in the shooting death of 27-year-old Paul Danny Khmabounheuang.

Attorneys had agreed that Smith should receive the 38-month sentence because he played a small part in the crime and agreed to testify against three other men charged in the case. A district judge imposed Smith’s sentence Thursday.

Prosecutors say Smith wasn’t involved in planning the robbery and was brought in to drive to the residence about an hour before the November 2013 shooting.

Smith’s attorney also noted that her client wasn’t armed.
