MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) - An Atlantic City man has admitted strangling a woman at a local motel and then leaving her body inside a van that he parked behind the city bus terminal.

Atlantic County prosecutors say 48-year-old David Williams pleaded guilty this week to aggravated manslaughter in the death of 23-year-old Siddiqah Bryant, whose body was found in the van in May 2012.

Williams faces up to 25 years in prison when he's sentenced on Jan. 31, 2014, and will have to serve nearly 22 years before he becomes eligible for parole.

Williams said he used a telephone cord to strangle Bryant during an argument, but authorities have not said what sparked the dispute. He fled to Texas the next day and was captured there in July 2012.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
