Man Pleads Guilty to Charge in Fatal NJ Kidnapping

Federal prosecutors say a southern New Jersey man has admitted concealing details about a home invasion and kidnapping that led to the death of an Atlantic City woman last year.

Forty-three-year-old Ronnie Ruffin of Lindenwold pleaded guilty Tuesday to a complaint charging him with failure to provide information about a serious crime. He faces up to three years in prison when he’s sentenced in January.

Ruffin admitted that he knew his daughter and nephew were involved in the March 2011 attack that led to the death of 19-year-old Nadirah Ruffin, who is not related to the defendants.

Authorities say Nadirah Ruffin was taken from her home at gunpoint because she recognized Ronnie Ruffin’s daughter. Nadirah Ruffin’s body was found in the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia nearly a month later.
