Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo reported the sentencing of a Westville man in the killing of a 2012 Jimmy Buffet concert in Camden.
Superior Court Judge Samuel Natal sentenced Matthew Shields, M/22, to four years incarceration in a New Jersey state prison Friday. He must serve 85 percent of that term before he is eligible for parole.
Shields pleaded guilty to Manslaughter in March. He admitted to punching 20-year-old Ryan Coyle, of Bellmawr, in the back of the head while the victim tailgated with friends in the parking lot of the Susquehanna Center on August 28, 2012. Coyle hit his head on the pavement when he fell and he died on August 31, 2012.
