Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported a Sicklerville man has been convicted for the 2013 shooting of a city woman he was dating at the time.

A jury on Wednesday found 37-year-old Timothy A. Horne guilty of three counts of aggravated assault and three weapons offenses.

The victim, a then-33-year-old Camden woman, had been shot in the abdomen inside her home on the 1100 block of Kaighn Avenue around 10 a.m. on August 28, 2013.  She was taken to Cooper University Hospital and dropped off by a driver who fled before police arrived.  The victim was initially reported to be in critical condition, but ultimately survived.

Horne was apprehended operating the victim’s vehicle in the area of South 7th  and Benson streets in Camden around 11:20 a.m.  In a statement, Horne told detectives the shooting was an accident that occurred during a domestic dispute with the victim and that he subsequently transported her to Cooper.  Assistant Prosecutor Cynthia Jentsch presented ballistics evidence and testimony at trial showing the firearm was not accidently discharged.

Horne faces up to 40 years in state prison.  He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 7 before Superior Court John T. Kelley.

Released Friday, June 12, 2015.
