Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk reported a sentencing Wednesday in connection with a 2012 homicide.
Superior Court Judge Frederick Schuck sentenced William W. White, M/60, of Camden, to 19 years incarceration on a count of Aggravated Manslaughter. White must serve 85 percent of that sentence before he is eligible for parole. White pleaded guilty in March.
White killed his longtime partner, Alma Brito-Reyes, F/49, at her residence on the 3000 block of Hartford Road in Camden. He and Brito-Reyes had been arguing and he brought a gun into a room with her during the argument. Brito-Reyes had been in the process of ending a long-term relationship with White.
In his March plea, White told the judge he proceeded to beat her with the gun and choked her. After her death White took her car and withdrew $500 from an ATM at a Mount Ephraim Wawa. He then drove her car, a 1997 Mercury Marquis, to Times Square in New York City and abandoned it there. He took a train to Florida and stayed there until he was found at a homeless assistance center in Homestead, Fla., where he was taken into custody.
The victim died some time between the night of June 3, 2012 and the 11 a.m. the next morning, when her body was discovered by a relative. The time of death was not able to be definitively determined.
Approximately 40 people from Brito-Reyes’ family attended the hearing Wednesday and provided testimonials remembering the victim and expressing the pain that has resulted from her death.
