Francis Williams, Former V.I. Officer Accused of Killing Two Colleagues, Found Guilty

ST. CROIX — Francis Williams, a former police officer who government prosecutors allege killed two colleagues on August 10, 2016 while serving in the V.I.P.D., was found guilty this afternoon on 8 of 10 counts.

Mr. Williams is facing life in prison for the killings of deceased Officers Lesha Lammy and Kai Javois.

The high-profile court battle, which commenced just over a week ago in the Superior Court and presided over by Judge Harold Willocks, saw the prosecution building a case that sought to paint Mr. Williams as a man whose feelings were hurt after learning that the woman he loved had left him for another man. Adding to the burn, the prosecution argued, the man was another police officer who had been a junior officer on the police force and a person he had considered a friend.

“Hell has no fury like a man scorned,” said Nadja Harrigan, an attorney with the prosecution, during opening arguments on May 13. With her gaze set on the jury, she added, “He [Francis Williams] could not stand that Lesha had moved on and refused his marriage proposal.”
