ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A man charged with providing a dose of illegal drugs that killed a University of Michigan music student has pleaded guilty.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1ETzk7m ) 20-year-old Brandon Phillips could serve up to 20 years for selling heroin and cocaine to 20-year-old Bruce Ketterer. Phillips pleaded guilty Thursday to delivery of a controlled substance causing death and other charges in two cases.

Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Darlene O’Brien agreed to sentence the Ann Arbor man to 5 to 20 years in prison.
