Walker died while in the hospital over a month later and he was declared the 25th homicide for Allen County in 2020 back in July.
The deal drops battery, attempted murder and aggravated battery charges against Arnold, according to the Allen County Prosecutor's Office.
The plea agreement would have Arnold serve a combined 51 and half years in prison if a judge agrees to it.
Arnold is scheduled to be sentenced on April 19.
