Sons of murder victim attack her killer at sentencing




YOUNGSTOWN, OH ( News) — It was total chaos in an Ohio courtroom on Thursday, as the sons of a murder victim attacked the killer at his sentencing.

Sixty-two-year-old Dale Williams was set to be sentenced for the murder of Elizabeth Pledger Stewart. The victim’s daughter was about to make a statement when the victim’s sons jumped Williams.

One of the men were tased, and it took a while for deputies to get the situation under control.

“He killed my mother, man,” the man said as deputies handcuffed him. “That was my mama! She took care of me, bro, when nobody else did.”

The brothers were arrested and will serve 30-days in jail for contempt of court.
