The Case:
“I didn’t mean to kill him,” Dennis Twitchell moaned. “It was an accident. I just wanted to teach him a lesson.”

The young man was on trial for murdering his friend Arnie. Although the jury believed him and was sympathetic, they still felt obligated to return a verdict of involuntary manslaughter.

The Mystery:
How did Dennis kill his friend? And what lesson had he been trying to teach?

The Clues:
Dennis studied harder, but Arnie got better grades. Cheaters never prosper. Arnie died coughing and sneezing.

Good gravy, no. I'm lousy at guessing clues.

Oh, and I already have the book, so you don't need to put me in the drawing.

So, somehow Arnie was trying to cheat off of Dennis, and Dennis sabotaged his notes to release pepper spray or some kind of toxic chemical that made Arnie cough and sneeze when he got close enough to the paper? Sheesh, I don't know how to guess more specifically based on these clues!
