Jamar S. Walker pleaded guilty Thursday to one first-degree count of aggravated manslaughter and a second-degree charge of aggravated assault, according to information from the office of acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni. Sentencing is scheduled for June 19.

The state seeks a concurrent 10-year term for the second-degree charge, along with a stipulation that Walker serve 17 years of the sentence before parole consideration, and five years of parole supervision on release.

Walker shot another Freehold Borough man and Orlando Rowe, 30, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, during a streetside argument on the night of April 18, 2013, prosecutors said. Rowe died during hospitalization.

Walker surrended at the Freehold Borough Police Department and was subsequently placed in the county Correctional Institution, with bail set at $1.5 million, authorities said.
