Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City

For Immediate Release 4/7/2015

The death of a 15-year old at the hands of yet another 15-year old is an unspeakable tragedy that no sentence can ever adequately address.

After analyzing this case- including the lone witness' credibility and the failure of 2 other surviving witnesses to come forward- we continued to pursue this case, even after a previous 11 to 1 not guilty verdict. Most prosecutors would have walked away from this case but we were ready to try it for a second time. Mr. Williams plead guilty to murder and is now under the supervision of the State.
