Warren Williams Case
An Escambia County teen is headed to prison for murdering his father.
Warren Williams, 15, pleaded guilty this morning to second degree murder for the death of 55-year old William Williams, a retired Marine. The young Williams, who was just accepted into the International Baccalaureate program at Pensacola High School, was watching the reality series “Survivor” while his mother attended a PTA meeting. During the program, he got up, left the room, and returned with the gun to shoot his father.
Williams was only 14-years old when he shot and killed his father with a 9mm handgun inside their home off Scenic Highway in March 2010. He was sentenced to just over 20.5 years in state prison and 15 years probation by Circuit Judge Joel Boles.
During the sentencing phase, Boles recommended that Warren be placed in the juvenile system until he turns 21. That decision will be made by the Florida Department of Corrections.
Williams’ only brother, 12-year old Sawyer, committed suicide in 2003. The defense claimed Warren Williams suffered depression from the traumatic event.
