A Cumberland County man has been sentenced to 23 years in prison in a 2015 homicide, the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Octaviam Robinson, 35, of Millville, must serve 17 years and 9 months before parole eligibility, according to Judge Robert Malestein. Robinson was found guilty in December of second-degree manslaughter, aggravated assault and related firearms offenses following a two-week trial.
Prior to the sentencing, Malestein denied a motion by Robinson for a new trial.
Robinson was sentenced to 15 years for manslaughter, which is subject to the No Early Release Act, and must serve 85 percent of his sentence. He also was sentenced to eight years with five years before parole eligibility for possession of a weapon by a convicted person. That sentence will be served consecutive to the manslaughter one.
Robinson was sentenced in the killing of Diante Broughton at North Second and Broad streets in Millville in 2015. Broughton suffered four bullet wounds and was pronounced dead at Inspira Medical Center in Vineland.
