Self-confessed killer gets 12 years for Trenton stabbing death
The man who stabbed 21-year-old Abraham Jeditoe to death in 2013 has finally been punished for his deadly crime.
Stanley Miller IV, 31, of Trenton, has been sentenced on Friday to 12 years of state imprisonment for fatally stabbing Jeditoe on Chambers Street near Trenton Central High School.
Miller pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter and must serve 85 percent of his sentence behind bars before he can become eligible for parole, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.
The homicide occurred on Aug. 4, 2013, and police arrested Miller two days later.
A grand jury originally indicted Miller on murder charges and weapons offenses, but the state dismissed the weapons offenses after he pleaded guilty to an amended count of aggravated manslaughter.
Miller and Jeditoe were acquainted with each other and were involved in a dispute when Miller launched the fatal attack. Jeditoe, a Hamilton resident, was pronounced dead at Capital Health Regional Medical Center shortly thereafter.
At the time of the slaying, Miller sported a pink Mohawk and matching beard.
