BRIDGETON — A Millville man was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison for killing a Commercial Township man with a concrete block, the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office announced.
Justin Daughtry, 25, pleaded guilty Nov. 5 to murdering Sean Hill, 21, of the township’s Port Norris section, Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a statement. Daughtry will be ineligible for parole for 30 years.
According to Webb-McRae, Millville police found Hill unresponsive inside an abandoned home at 805 N. Second St. while doing a property check April 22, 2016. He was declared dead at the scene.

An autopsy found Hill suffered blunt-force trauma to the head, and the death was ruled a homicide.
Daughtry was charged in August 2016 after a four-month investigation by Millville police and the Prosecutor’s Major Crimes Unit, Webb-McRae said.
An arrest warrant released by the Prosecutor’s Office in August 2016 said Daughtry used a concrete block “with the purpose to use it unlawfully against the person of Sean Hill.”
Superior Court records indicated Daughtry had a prior burglary conviction.
