Michele Williams has been taken into police custody at Tarrant County Jail. Williams, 44, pled guilty to deadly conduct and tampering with evidence in the 2011 death of her husband, Greg Williams. She is being held without bond.
Due to a high-risk pregnancy with twins, Michele Williams had been allowed to be free on bond with a GPS ankle monitor until her sentencing hearing in April, when she was to begin a 20-year prison stint. Williams' attorney, Kenneth Wincorn, says his client went to the court for a status hearing and revealed she had lost her babies around Christmas.
"She came in voluntarily," Wincorn says. "The agreement was that she would wait for the sentencing until after she had the babies, but since she lost the twins, she had to come in."
Deputy chief Jack Strickland confirmed that she was brought before Judge Scott Wisch on January 30 and would remain in the Tarrant County Jail pending the result of her sentencing hearing on February 10, when she is expected to be transported to state prison.
Michele Williams' bizarre case captivated the nation due to many twists and turns. She initially told police that an intruder killed her husband. She later changed her story to say Greg had committed suicide, but forensic evidence showed the gun was fired by someone else. Michele was the only adult present at the time of her husband's death and admitted to wiping down the crime scene with bleach.
Greg's first wife, Kathy Williams, was elated at the news that her ex-husband's killer was finally behind bars. Kathy Williams was not pleased with the fact that Michele has been allowed to be out in society up to this point.
"I think I might be able to sleep through the night tonight," Kathy says. "Finally, something is on our side."
