    A South Jersey man who fatally shot an aspiring rapper during a recording session in now headed to state prison.

    Marcel Steele received a 14-year sentence on Monday. The 23-year-old Deptford man had pleaded guilty last month to manslaughter, aggravated assault and a drug count.

    Authorities have said Steele and 22-year-old Jodeci Robinson were at a Deptford home recording music on a makeshift studio Steele had set up in a bedroom when they got into a dispute over money in November 2018.

    Authorities said Robinson withdrew cash from an ATM and they returned to the house, but Steele again asked for his money and drew a weapon when Robinson told him to "chill."
