CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Another person involved in the torture killings of a Burlington County couple has received a lengthy prison sentence.
Nineteen-year-old Keenan Wideman of Pennsauken received a 30-year term Friday and must serve 85 percent of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole. He pleaded guilty in June to two counts of aggravated manslaughter stemming from the February 2010 deaths of 23-year-old Michael Hawkins of Mount Holly and his 18-year-old girlfriend, Muriah Huff of Cinnaminson.
Camden County prosecutors say several people — males and females who ranged in age from 14 to 24 — attacked the couple before they were killed in a Camden rowhouse. They were buried in a shallow grave in the backyard.
Hawkins was beaten and shot as part of a gang dispute, while Huff was an innocent bystander
