A 40-year-old White man who, out of his hate for Black folks, killed an African-American woman in a random act of violence in 2005 was sentenced Friday to life in a New Jersey prison.
Walter Dille Jr., sat emotionless as Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Albert Garofolo told him he would get life without parole for shooting to death 44-year-old Cindy Cade, plus another 20 years for other crimes.
Dille murdered Cade in the parking lot of a movie theater where she had stopped to buy tickets for the premiere of "King Kong."
Marcus Cade displayed two photographs of his wife in court, saying he wanted to show who Cindy was.
"She was a daughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunt, a co-worker, a mother, my wife, my partner, my soulmate, my best friend," he said. "My future grandchildren will never get the opportunity to benefit from Cindy's joy and the beauty of her love."
Dille finally showed some emotion. He laughed when Cindy Cade's brother, Stephen Parker, read a letter from his parents, saying they hoped the sentence given him would deter others.
