Concrete block killer will spend 30 years in jail


The man who pleaded guilty to killing a man with a concrete block was sentenced in a Cumberland County courtroom Friday.

Judge Robert Malestein sentenced Millville resident 25-year-old Justin Daughtry to 30 years in prison without parole for the death of 21-year-old Sean Hill. Daughtry pleaded guilty to first-degree murder Nov. 5 in connection with Hill’s death.

Daughtry used a concrete block to hit Hill in the head inside an abandoned house on 2nd Street in Millville Apr. 22, 2016, he admitted. Millville Police did a property check and found Hill dead inside the home. The Millville Police Department and the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office conducted a four-month investigation which led to Daughtry being named a suspect. He was then arrested and charged with homicide.

Senior Assistant Prosecutor Elizabeth Vogelsong tried the case for the state and Nathaniel Perry represented Daughtry.
