Chip Fox, 37, is facing a maximum of 9 ½ years in prison.

Fox, Kevin Reardon, 35, of Valencia, Calif., and a female companion had stopped for the night at a home in New Mexico. Prosecutors said they were huffing a can of dust cleaner to get high shortly before Fox stabbed Reardon.

Reardon was airlifted to a hospital in Texas where he later died from a single stab wound.

The court is awaiting evaluations of Fox by the New Mexico Department of Corrections before setting a sentencing date.

    In the eyes of the law, manslaughter is not murder.
