A Camden New Jersey man received a sentence of 75 years in NJ State Prison after being convicted in the shooting deaths of two people.
During the trial, which was held in Camden County Superior Court, New Jersey prosecutors presented evidence indicating that the suspect probably shot two men to death in Lindenwold, New Jersey.
The shooting incident occurred on December 9, 2011. The suspect was reportedly seated in the backseat of a Toyota Camry that had been parked outside the Pine Ridge apartment complex in Lindenwold, NJ.
Both shooting victims were 24-year-old males. One of the victims was from Berlin, NJ, while the other victim was from Lumberton, New Jersey.
Police investigated the shooting and soon identified the suspect, a 28-year-old man from Sicklerville NJ, as the likely culprit. He was subsequently charged him with two counts of first degree murder, in addition to multiple weapons offenses.
At the time of the murder trial, the suspect has already been incarcerated in a federal prison on unrelated armed robbery charges.
Now the suspect may end up spending the rest of his life, in prison. At the conclusion of the trial in Camden County Superior Court, a jury convicted the suspect on the most serious charges of murder. The superior court judge later sentenced the suspect to a term of incarceration of 75 years in state prison.
