Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk reported a sentencing Friday of a defendant in a 2004 homicide.

Superior Court Judge Samuel Natal sentenced Benny Santiago, M/30, a Puerto Rican who had moved to Camden just six months before the killing, to a 16 year term of incarceration Friday. Santiago must serve 85 percent of that before becoming eligible for parole. Santiago pleaded guilty in January to Aggravated Manslaughter in connection with the May 23, 2004 killing of Camden resident Charles E. Tokley, M/35, on the 1300 block of Centennial Village in Camden.

Santiago participated in a fight at that address among numerous others that stemmed from another dispute during a basketball game at a nearby court several days before the killing. Tokley himself was not initially involved in the May 23 fight, but stepped in to defend his girlfriend’s son, who was being attacked. During the course of the fight, Santiago pulled a handgun from his waistband and fired at Tokley.

Santiago was a fugitive for approximately six years until 2010, when he was found living under an assumed identity in Philadelphia.
