Tonight, we start in Fulton County where a man who was accused of murdering a Georgia State business student is now free on bail. Quav Williams recently posted a $10,000 bond after a judge set his bail at $100,000. Good evening, I’m Ross Spencer, and I’m Courtney Bryant.
Fox’s Christopher King spoke with the sister of the victim who believes that Williams should be behind bars. Christopher joins us live with more. Indeed, Courtney.
The murder suspect only had to put up $10,000 and now he is walking free. The sister of the victim believes that he should not have been granted any bond at all.
“It’s really frustrating that it’s going this way,” she said. Derek Alexander, the sister’s brother, was shot and killed last April while sitting in a car at The Creekside at Adamsville community on Martin Luther King Jr.
Drive in southwest Atlanta. Quav Williams is the only person charged so far in the murder, which the sister describes as heinous and monstrous. Last Friday, Williams posted 10% of the $100,000 bond, amounting to $10,000, and he is now required to wear an ankle monitor.
Given the seriousness of his charges, the sister believes that he should not have been granted bail. She at least wanted a significantly higher bond, starting at $250,000, which would have made the 10% a much higher amount as well. Derek was a Business Administration major at Georgia State University and had a passion for soccer, even playing it briefly in Europe.
The police are still searching for another individual who can be seen in surveillance videos. This unknown person unnerves the sister, as she explains that not knowing their identity is the scariest part.
We reached out to the Fulton County District Attorney’s office for a comment and are currently awaiting a response. Meanwhile, the sister believes that the police may be looking for another person of interest and wants anyone responsible for her brother’s death to receive a life sentence in prison. Reporting live from Fulton County Court, this is Christopher King for Fox 5 news.
Thank you, Christopher, for sharing her perspective..
