MAYS LANDING, N.J. – A Pennsylvania man who admitted gunning down a New Jersey casino supervisor last year has been sentenced to 30 years in state prison without parole.
Fifty-eight-year-old Mark Magee was sentenced Wednesday in the death of 57-year-old shift manager Ray Kot.
The Norristown, Pa., man has admitted that he walked into Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in 2009 with a gun and targeted Kot, whom he knew from regularly gambling there.
Magee has said he believed casinos cheat gamblers by electronically manipulating table games like roulette and craps.
Kot was a Chinese immigrant who arrived in the U.S. in 1970 unable to speak English and worked his way up from menial jobs. He had worked at the Taj Mahal since it opened in 1990.
