Robber pleads guilty to involuntary manslaughter

By: The Associated Press


A Johnstown pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and other charges in the death of a man that authorities said occurred as the defendant was robbing the victim.

The Tribune-Democrat reported Thursday's plea agreement in Cambria County Court involving 20-year-old Keenan Snyder also includes charges of robbery and unrelated traffic offenses.

Snyder was charged in a November 2011 break-in targeting Robert Kuharcik, who authorities said died of a heart attack in the process.

Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan said the victim's health problems made it difficult to pursue a conviction on more severe charges.

The judge rejected a defense request to allow Snyder to remain free pending sentencing to spend time with his family, saying his actions robbed others of a loved one.
