40-year old Walter Dille Jr. showed no emotion as he learned his fate in court today.
Dille murdered 44-year old Cindy Cade during a botched carjacking in December of 2005.
The self-proclaimed white supremacist and “skinhead” will spend the rest of his life behind bars without the possibility of parole for murder, plus 20 years for weapons offense for gunning down Cade, Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel announced Friday.
An Atlantic County jury found Dille guilty of murder on Feb. 2 for the heinous racially motivated killing of the Galloway Township woman. Dille shot Cade in the head at close range while she was in her car at the Regal Cinema parking lot in Hamilton Township, Atlantic County according to police.
On Friday the victim’s family was present to see their loved one’s murderer sentenced.
Dille chose not to speak prior to his sentencing of life in prison.
However, the words of Cade’s husband, Marcus Cade Jr. spoke volumes of the harm Dille caused his family. Tears fell from the faces of many people in the courtroom.
“Cindy Cade brought joy and shined her light of happiness to this world. She was a daughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunt, a co-worker, a mother, my wife, my partner, my soul mate, my friend,” Marcus Cade told the Court with the couple’s two sons at his side. “I’m sure we will feel her loss for the rest of our lives. I cannot put into words how deep a hole in my soul her loss has created,” Marcus Cade said.
In addition to murder, Dille was convicted of carjacking, robbery, two counts of felony murder – one for the carjacking and one for the robbery, tampering with physical evidence, hindering apprehension and weapons offenses. The gun was never recovered.
