CAMDEN, New Jersey — A Camden man convicted in the shooting death of a romantic rival has been sentenced to 24 years in state prison.

Camden County prosecutors say Demarcus Drew must serve 15 years before he becomes eligible for parole under the sentence imposed Friday. He also was convicted on two weapons charges.

The 34-year-old Drew was found guilty last month of passion provocation manslaughter in the November 2011 death of 46-year-old Marvin Simpson. Authorities have said Drew and Simpson were dating the same woman, and the two men were arguing when Drew shot Simpson "multiple times."

No other injuries were reported in the shooting.
