Albany -- An Albany transvestite pleads guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of another transvestite.

Stephen Thomas admitted pumping silicone into Andre Geter's body two years ago to make him look more like a woman. Geter died of blood poisoning in December 2003. Stephen Thomas was sentenced to 15 years, five in prison.

Chief Assistant District Attorney Greg Edwards said "the victim himself was a willing participant. He wanted the procedures done."

Three other transvestites charged with helping Thomas' pumping business are still awaiting trial.
