Robber Sent to Jail, justified reason?

I am not sure that this is where this post should be...

I was just told that somewhere near where I live two men went to rob a house. I am not sure if either of them were armed. The tenant of the house shot both men, killing one of them.

The robber that lived was just sentanced for the death of the dead robber. The reason was because he died as a result of the robbery, so it was his fault the other guy died.

I am not sure, but I think that this is a little harsh. The robber did not kill that man, nor did he conspire to do so.

I don't understand how the government justifies this?

I think that extra penalties are attached when a death result during the commission of a crime.

If you have a link or more specific info, maybe members whould have more to go on. Laws may vary by state, so whatever you can provide...

For lack of a better forum for this, I think it can stay here.

I just heard by mouth, I will try to find out some more information. All I know is the tenant, the man who shot both robbers, killing one, is not being sentanced for his actions at all.

I think he should maybe have gotten involuntary manslaughter though?
That would be taking into consideration for self defense...
