Benjamin Crawford

A Houston man entered a not guilty plea recently to an involuntary manslaughter charge in the death of a Houston, Mo., teen.

Benjamin J. Crawford is to appear for a trial setting on July 6.

Another man charged in the case, Matthew C. Mayfield, is awaiting a preliminary hearing.

Both are charged in the death of David Foster, who died in a May 31, 2009, single-car accident. Authorities allege the pair purchased alcohol and provided it to minors at 110 Elm St. in Houston. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Foster, 18, consumed alcohol at the residence, and his fatal accident occurred after leaving.
