Police said Williams kicked two doors in, stabbed a bathroom door multiple times, and chased DJ outside the home where Williams fatally stabbed DJ in the chest with a butcher knife. Before he was stabbed to death outside, DJ tried to call his cousin for a ride, according to police.

Williams’ roommate was interviewed by police who said she separated Williams from DJ a couple of times and tried to close and lock the front door to keep Williams from DJ once he left the home.

Police also interviewed children and a witness who was present during the altercation. They all corroborated the police’s info.

Williams and DJ’s relationship is unclear.


On Friday, a Douglas County jury convicted Jasmine Williams of malice murder, aggravated assault, and felony murder.

At the time of the stabbing, Williams was out on bond for an aggravated assault from two months ago where she used a knife to threaten a neighbor.

“Our community yet again faces another tragic loss to domestic violence. We have to understand that this interrupts the very fabric of our county. A family has lost a loved one in a violent and senseless act,” District Attorney Dalia Racine said.
