SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary.

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A Wausau area man will spend just over 11-and-a-half years in prison for driving the getaway vehicle in an armed home invasion east of Hatley.

22-year-old Ademus Saechao – also known as “Kung Fu Panda” – must also spend 10 years under extended supervision once he gets out.

He was found guilty last summer of 7 Marathon County felony charges connected with a home robbery in August of 2011.

Authorities said the victims were tied up with vacuum cords as the robbers took guns, knives, and a Samurai sword. Saechao was arrested three months later in Green Bay.

Two other defendants are still facing charges in the case.

19-year-old Manuel Alonso-Bermudez of Antigo could learn Tuesday when his trial date will be. 20-year-old Joseph Rohmeyer of Wausau has a two-day trial scheduled to begin May 6th.

All three faced the same seven felony counts, which include false imprisonment, armed robbery, armed burglary, and theft.
