CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Camden man has been sentenced to 30 years in state prison for a botched street robbery that left a man dead last year.

Camden County prosecutors say 31-year-old Alexander Santiago must serve the entire term imposed Friday before he can be freed. He had pleaded guilty in September to a felony murder charge.

Santiago admitted that he was trying to rob 45-year-old Camden resident William Ahing when he stabbed him multiple times in January 2013. The attack occurred on the 500 block of State Street.

Family and friends of Ahing attended the sentencing, including his mother. She read a victim impact statement that described her son as a gentle giant who was kind and considerate.
