A Camden man has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in connection with the torture killing last year of a 23-year-old rival gang member in Camden.
Lance Fulton, 21, entered the guilty plea Thursday in Superior Court in Camden County, the county Prosecutor's Office said. Fulton admitted kicking and punching Michael Hawkins during the Feb. 21, 2010, assault in a house on the 500 block of Berkley Street.
Fulton also admitted holding Hawkins down while others assaulted him. According to authorities, Fulton said the group believed Hawkins, of Mount Holly, had stolen liquor from the home of another defendant in the case.
