Nineteen-year-old Keenan Snyder, of Johnstown, was arraigned Tuesday on burglary, robbery and other charges in the Nov. 11 break-in targeting Robert Kuharcik who died in the process. Police began investigating when Kuharcik's estranged wife found him dead the next day.
Police say Snyder later told a friend that Kuharcik died of a heart attack during the robbery. Detective Thomas Owens tells the Tribune-Democrat newspaper of Johnstown that's why police are continuing to investigate a possible homicide charge.
Snyder's public defender did not immediately return a call for comment Wednesday.
