Man gets lengthy prison sentence in deadly street robbery
CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — A Camden man convicted of felony murder and several other charges stemming from a deadly street robbery in the city three years ago has been sentenced to 58 years in prison.
Raymond Pagan was found guilty in April of felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated manslaughter and two weapons counts. He received a 50-year sentence for those charges on Friday, along with a consecutive eight-year sentence for another weapons charge.
Camden County prosecutors say the 32-year-old Pagan and another Camden man, 20-year-old Samuel Lopez, were involved a September 2015 robbery of 34-year-old Jose Franco that ended with Franco being fatally shot in the chest. Franco’s brother had been fatally shot in the same area four years earlier.
Lopez was convicted on similar charges last October. He’s now serving a 45-year sentence.
