A 42-year-old North Carolina woman initially charged in the shooting death of a woman in Niagara Falls won't be indicted on a murder charge.
According to the Buffalo News, (http://bit.ly/17UsksL ) Niagara County Judge Matthew Murphy said the grand jury chose to indict Cammesoa Williams on a charge of criminal possession of a weapon, not murder. The Winston-Salem resident was arrested along with her boyfriend in the shooting death of Tijuana Davis at the 39-year-old victim's apartment.
The newspaper reports that Williams' attorney Herbert L. Greenman successfully sought bail for his client.
Prosecutors said they couldn't discuss the indictment until an arraignment in a week.
Police say two North Carolina residents who were in Niagara Falls for a wedding are facing murder charges in the shooting death of a 39-year-old woman.
Niagara Falls police were called to an apartment in the city around 3:30 a.m. Saturday after someone reported shots fired. Police found the victim with two gunshot wounds.
They arrested 50-year-old Richard Moore and 42-year-old Cammesoa Williams at the scene and charged them with second-degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm. Both are from Winston-Salem, N.C.
Police say Moore shot the victim in the abdomen after an argument escalated into a physical fight. He and Williams drove off, but police say they came back and Williams shot the victim again.
The victim's name hasn't been released yet.
