Twenty-two-year-old Dennis Welch of Camden faces up to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to aggravated manslaughter. Camdne County prosecutors say he entered the plea as a jury was being selected to hear his murder case.

Welch admitted beating Michael Hawkins, a 23-year-old Mount Holly resident was attacked and shot in a gang dispute in February 2010.

But he was not charged in the death of Hawkins’ girlfriend, 18-year-old Muriah Huff. Prosecutors say Huff was an innocent bystander who was killed to prevent her from identifying the attackers.
