Two men accused of robbing a Wisconsin fast-food restaurant are facing murder charges after a bystander suffered a fatal heart attack during the incident.
The charges against the alleged robbers, Xavier Fleming, 25, and Nicholas Ivy, 32, were included in court documents filed in Dane County Circuit Court, Wisconsin, on Monday.
Documents claim the two men continued with the heist after 56-year-old contractor Christ Kneubuehl collapsed as a result of a 'medical emergency' after being forced to help them open the safe inside a Madison Culver's store in the early hours of June 27, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.
Kneubuehl was in the restaurant with his crew at the time. Members of his crew told police Kneubuehl agreed to help the men break into the safe to ensure everyone's safety, but he then suffered a heart attack.
