DOVER — A Camden man was sentenced to 19 years incarceration Tuesday in the shooting death of an 18-year-old man in 2015.

He was shot in the upper torso and head, authorities said.

Garner was held in prison on Jan. 26, 2015 on the rape charge and was charged in the shooting death on Nov. 9, 2015.
