Camden County prosecutors say 22-year-old Dorelle Wallace of Stratford must serve roughly 22 years before becoming eligible for parole. He had pleaded guilty last month to charges stemming from that case and another robbery the pair committed.

Authorities have said Wallace and 31-year-old Dwayne Tribbett of Woodbury tried unsuccessfully to rob a check cashing business in Lindenwold in July 2011. They then drove to a nearby apartment complex, where Tribbet broke into an unoccupied unit.

A police officer shot Tribbett in the chest after he threatened police and refused to drop his weapon. Wallace was captured later that day at a nearby rail station.
