American homicide, convicted of the murder of three people in 1979 and spending more than 17 years on death row in prison.

Williams was born a month premature with fetal alcohol poisoning due to his mother's heavy intake of alcohol during her pregnancy. He was a slow and sickly kid, raised by a stepfather who gave him ruthless beatings at any infraction. Later diagnosed with bipolar disorder, he was treated with lithium when he was in prison. When out of jail, he stopped his medications and took booze and heroin to self-medicate, trying to control his depression.

In October 1978, Williams had a garage sale of items that he had stolen. A couple who came by the sale sold him their car, which he paid for with a forged check. He reconsidered the check, afraid to get picked up by the law, and went to the home of the couple to get the check back, taking along his buddy, Robert Tyson. He got into an argument with Miguel Vargas and his cousin, Salvador Marcias that concluded with gunfire, when Williams shot both Vargas and Marcias in the head. He and Tyson grabbed Miguel's girlfriend, Lourdes Meza and dragged her away from her four kids and fled. After both men raped her, Williams shot her four times.

After 17 years in prison, Williams finally went to the death chamber to be executed by lethal injection on May (?), 1996, 00:08 AM, San Quentin, taking five minutes to die.
