KENOSHA,WI—The Kenosha County man who was convicted of killing two brothers outside of a bar will spend the rest of his life in prison.
26 year old Nathan Kivi was sentenced yesterday to two life sentences for the deaths of Kenneth and Richard Samuel outside of a Twin Lakes bar on Thanksgiving night 2017.
After hearing from the brothers’ sister and mother, Judge Bruce Schroeder sentenced Kivi, calling the crime a “ghastly execution,” and agreeing with prosecutors that he is dangerous if he ever were to get out of prison.
Kivi was out on both probation and bond at the time of the murders, which his lawyers tried to argue were in self defense. Kivi had been in conflict with friends of the Samuels’ on the night of the crime, but there’s no evidence that they had interacted with Kivi before he shot them.
Kivi did not make a statement at his sentencing.
