MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A man whose armed robbery of a Culver’s restaurant in Madison led to a bystander’s fatal heart attack has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. Nicholas Ivy and Xavier Fleming pleaded guilty in August to causing the death of 56-year-old Chris Kneubuehl, of Twin Lakes, during the robbery last year. The judge said at Ivy’s sentencing that he caused Kneubuehl’s death by refusing to let others call for help when the victim fell ill. Fleming’s sentencing is Dec. 17.
