              David J. Williams out on bond

              David Jackson Williams, 28, is at home in Olive Branch with family after posting a $100,000 bond at about 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. He was convicted in 2008 in the stabbing death of Demetria Bracey of Jackson three years before. The Supreme Court granted him a new trial in December ruling that the trial judge erred by not giving the jury the option of finding Williams guilty of assisted suicide. Since the conviction was overturned, the presumption of innocence returns to Williams and was granted bond. A new trial date has been set for Oct. 17. (March 23, 2011, Page 1)
