Denise Williams

Denise Williams, 48, is accused of plotting the murder of her husband and high school sweetheart 18 years ago and covering it up. Williams faces charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and accessory after the fact. When he went missing, Mike Williams was believed to have drowned during a duck hunting accident at a lake in Jackson County and his body eaten by alligators. That was until his best friend, Brian Winchester, confessed that he'd shot Williams at point-blank range then transported his body back to Leon County as part of a plot devised along with Denise Williams. Mike Williams' body was found in the mud along the banks of Carr Lake in Leon County. Winchester, who married Denise Williams five years after she was widowed, confessed after he was sentenced to 20 years in prison for kidnapping her at gunpoint. Winchester was granted immunity for his role in Williams' death and is set to testify at trial.
