A SOUTH JERSEY man has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend.

Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk said Robert Norwood, 49, of Camden, entered his plea yesterday. He's expected to receive a 27-year state prison term when he's sentenced on June 6.

Norwood admitted that he fatally stabbed Walkeena Moody, 24, inside her unit at Ferry Station Apartments in Camden in December 2012. She was stabbed in the head and torso.

Norwood was arrested a short time after Moody's body was found in her bathtub.
