INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man who was convicted in an April 2018 robbery that left one person dead and two others seriously injured received a 95-year prison sentence Friday.

Fransuah Mathews was convicted in August of murder, felony murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated battery and one count of robbery resulting in serious bodily injury.

Kylie Price, 24, died in a shooting on April 19, 2018, in the 1200 block of S. Manhattan Ave. near I-465 and W. Washington St. According to the Marion County prosecutor, another man is paralyzed from the waist down and a second man suffered permanent nerve damage.

One of the survivors told police his father had arranged for a methamphetamine and gun deal with the two suspects before it ended in a robbery with three people being shot, according to court documents.

The two surviving victims were able to provide police with enough information to identify Mathews and Anthony Smith as the suspects and both were arrested.

Smith is scheduled to go on trial Oct. 15.
