Timothy Kelly, 58, was sentenced Friday to 130 months after pleading guilty in August to two robberies, two thefts and 16 burglaries. The crimes occurred between September of 2016 and July of 2017. 

The Sedgwick County DA's office said Kelly was also ordered to pay nearly $4,000 in restitution to the victims of the two robberies, which happened at Shirkmere Apartments near 2nd Street and Topeka. 

In each robbery, Kelly attacked and injured and apartment resident.

The burglaries involved several Dollar General, Dollar Tree Family Dollar and Save-A-Lot locations in Wichita. Kelly committed most of them at night, smashing a window and taking candy, cigarettes, batteries, meat, chips and other small items.
