A Springfield man faces up to 30 years in prison in the death of another man from heroin. Gary Clark entered a guilty plea Wednesday for his role in the death of Brent Buehlre in 2012.

Buehlre was found dead in a car at Southwind Park after Clark reportedly called 9-1-1.  Sangamon County State’s Attorney John Milhiser says while Clark did not intend to kill Buerhle, his sale of the drugs was enough to convict him of the crime.

Clark will be sentenced in September.
