I can't comment on the case specifically, but in general, that scenario is unlikely.  While anything's possible, use of a calcium channel blocker in the setting of 1st degree AVB won't lead to sudden cardiac death in most cases.

Another cardiac cause should be sought, rather than the association of the CCB and 1st degree AVB.
