Two Wisconsin men are facing charges for armed robbery after an alleged incident that is said to have led to the death of another individual. One of the accused also faces felony murder charges after authorities claim to have found evidence that ties him to the scene. Violent crimes of this nature carry severe penalties, and if convicted, both could be facing numerous consequences, including time behind bars.
According to reports, four men were working on remodeling a local restaurant when the two men allegedly entered the building from a rear door. At some point during or after the alleged robbery, one of the men passed away for unspecified reasons. Authorities assert the incident may have scared the man to the point of death. During the investigation, police also claim to have found DNA evidence at the scene, which led to the arrest of one of the individuals.
The second person was arrested on a recent Thursday following a separate robbery, of which no information was provided. Police also believe that he was involved in the previous incident as well. However, it is unclear if they found additional evidence or information that would support these allegations.
With the potential weight of the consequences for armed robbery charges, those accused of such violent crimes may often choose to prepare for the road ahead by focusing on their defense. Since the process can be stressful and intimidating, many of the accused might speak with a defense attorney for guidance throughout this challenging period. An attorney can thoroughly evaluate the charges and evidence against a client in Wisconsin, provide advice on the potential consequences and outcomes thereof, and assist in forming a strong defense for use during court proceedings.
