Gunman Pleads Guilty to Murder of Phoenixville Man

Selvin Mamerto Lopez-Mauricio was shot and killed on Sept. 14, 2011.

Saleem Williams, the 21-year-old Delaware County man accused of pulling the trigger in the September 2011 shooting death of a Phoenixville fast food employee, pleaded guilty on Monday morning, the Times Herald is reporting.

Williams admitted to the homicide, as well as to hatching a plot to escape from Chester County Prison with two other inmates, the paper is reporting. He was sentenced to 40 to 80 years in state prison for his crimes.

On Sept. 14, 2011, Williams shot Selvin Mamerto Lopez-Mauricio, 22, of the 100 block of Prospect Street, in the chest at close range during an attempted robbery in the borough. Lopez-Mauricio, who was walking home from his job at Wendy’s at the time of the attack, was pronounced dead at Phoenixville Hospital later that morning.
