KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A jury has convicted a man accused of killing two brothers after a fight at a Twin Lakes bar in November 2017.
The Kenosha News reports that Nathan Kivi was found guilty Tuesday of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting deaths of 31-year-old Kenneth Samuel III and his 28-year-old brother, Richard Samuel. They were killed in the parking lot of the Beach Bar.
First-degree homicide carries a mandatory life sentence.
The 26-year-old Kivi alleged that he shot the Twins Lakes brothers in self-defense. He said they ran toward him and he feared for his life. Prosecutors said during the trial and Kivi was motivated not by fear, but rage.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 3.
