Angela Simmons' ex-fiancé's alleged killer turns himself in, charged with murder

ATLANTA — The man accused of killing Angela Simmons' ex-fiancé turned himself in to police Wednesday afternoon, and Channel 2 Action News was there.

Michael Williams was charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of Sutton Tennyson.

Williams' attorney, Jackie Patterson, told Channel 2's Tom Jones that his client "will not be making any statements" as he turned himself in.

"He's presumed innocent," Patterson said.


A source told Jones that Williams decided to turn himself in because of intense pressure from a fugitive squad looking for him.

Patterson said the allegations are taking a toll on his client.

"He's devastated," Patterson said about Williams. "He's absolutely devastated. He's a family man."

Williams faces murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during a felony charges. He's expected to face a judge Thursday.


The murder of Tennyson shocked people in the upscale community where he lived.

"Whatever the situation was, I'm sure there could have been an alternative ending that didn't result in a child losing his father," one neighbor said.
