CAMDEN, N.J. — An 18-year-old woman who fatally shot a 13-year-old boy last year has been sentenced to 30 years in state prison.

Casche Alford was sentenced on Friday after pleading guilty to aggravated manslaughter in the death of Nathaniel Plummer in Camden last January.

She was also sentenced prison in two separate cases, including an armed robbery of a cab driver in December 2015 and a non-fatal shooting of a Camden man in October 2015.

Alford will be required to serve 85 percent of her sentenced before she is eligible for parole.
