Philadelphia Man Pleads Guilty to Fatally Stabbing His Girlfriend at Atlantic City, NJ, Casino
A man from Philadelphia has pleaded guilty in connection to fatally stabbing his girlfriend at an Atlantic City casino in 2021.
This past Tuesday, 61-year-old Frankie E. Lane pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated manslaughter in exchange for a 20-year term in state prison.
On June 11, 2021, Atlantic City Police responded to Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City for a report of a woman suffering from multiple stab wounds.
The victim was found deceased in a hotel room with a sheet covering her body and a knife on top of the sheet. The victim’s boyfriend, Lane, was seen on surveillance footage wearing clothing later found in a bag that had been tossed in a trash can in Atlantic City. Lane was seen leaving the hotel with the bag but did not have it with him at the Atlantic City bus terminal, where security footage showed him traveling back to Philadelphia.
Lane was located and surrendered to law enforcement a few days later.
Sentencing is scheduled for Friday, June 23rd.
