Case Closed: Ronell Williams

Ronell Williams family saw justice served last week as the man charged with murdering him plead guilty to murdering him in 2007. Andre Dexter Bourne, 24, was on federal parole and under a lifetime firearms ban when he fired six bullets into Ronell Williams on the morning of Sept. 9, 2007.

Bourne fatally shot Williams who tried to intervene and stop a fight that was going on at a house party. Bourne did not know the victim but shot him six times in the torso. Bourne threw the shell casings from the murder weapon in the sewer which cops eventually found. Police had arrested Bourne 10 hours after the shooting.

Williams had recently been laid off from Chrysler. He had no criminal record and had never had any contact with police. Bourne is a cousin of Jordan Manners, 15, who was shot dead less than four months earlier inside C.W. Jeffreys Collegiate in Toronto.
