murder-suicide

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)

    Court to hear killer’s appeal

    The Mississippi Supreme Court says it will grant convicted killer David Williams the opportunity to appeal his 2007 conviction when he was sentenced to life in prison for killing college student and former ex-girlfriend, Demetria Bracey of Jackson. Willams’ attorney, David Hill, said that his client did not have a fair trial and they feel confident that the court will correct a bad result. (July 23, 2010, Page 1A)
