Burlington City man gets 50 years after stabbing mother of son
A Burlington City man who has been arrested 92 times and has 11 prior felony convictions was sentenced to 50 years in prison after fatally stabbing his son's mother in November 2016.
40 year old Rashon Causey must serve 42 years for the fatal stabbing of 37 year old Shanai Marshall before being eligible for parole.
Causey was also found guilty of burglary and weapons charges.
More than 20 of Marshall's family members and friends attended the sentencing. Burlington County Assistant Prosecutor Courtney J. O' Brien argued for life in prison saying, "the case represents the most heinous aspect of domestic violence, and the effect it can have on a person and that person's family."
