LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Court records show a manslaughter charge has been dismissed against a central Arkansas lawyer as part of a plea deal.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ( ) reports that Andrea Davis of Hot Springs has pleaded guilty to unlawful use of a communication device in Garland County Circuit Court. She was sentenced to six years of probation, a $1,500 fine and 80 hours of community service.

Prosecutors dropped the manslaughter charge that she faced in the 2012 fatal shooting of 34-year-old Maxwell Anderson. Her brother also was charged in the shooting and pleaded guilty to negligent homicide.

Davis admitted in 2013 to an inappropriate relationship with former Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, who was married, that led him to drop his bid for the Democratic nomination for governor.
