Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk reported a Camden man pleaded guilty Wednesday to committing a 2011 double homicide in Camden.
Michael “Money Mike” McNeil, M/25, of the 900 block of N. 4th Street in Camden, pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to two counts of Aggravated Manslaughter before Superior Court Judge Samuel Natal. He is expected to be sentenced to a total of 23 years incarceration in a New Jersey state prison, 85 percent of which must be served before he is eligible for parole.
McNeil and Taurean Gilmore, M/27, of Camden, had engaged for months in a feud over a woman who had once dated Gilmore, and that dispute turned violent on September 6, 2011. McNeil approached Gilmore about 2:30 p.m. that day as Gilmore sat in the passenger side of a 2010 Toyota Corolla parked near the intersection of 5th and York streets. Gilmore’s cousin Husani Boone, M/34, also of Camden, was sitting at the car’s steering wheel.
McNeil fired repeatedly through the passenger side window into the vehicle, hitting Gilmore multiple times and Boone once. Boone died at the scene and Gilmore died shortly after the shooting at Cooper Hospital. Boone was an unintended target of a shooting targeting Gilmore.
McNeil’s sentencing is scheduled for November 1, 2011 before Superior Court Judge Natal.
