Kimeshia Williams, Sister of Los Angeles Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard, Charged With Murder



(Newser)

Police recommended that one of two suspects in the brutal murder of an 84-year-old woman be held without bail after they discovered that she had a wealthy brother: Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard. The Riverside County Sheriff‘s Department says Kimeshia Williams, 35, and Candace Townsel, 39, have been charged with robbery and murder in the death of Afaf Anis Assad, who was attacked in the bathroom of a California casino on Aug. 31, CNN reports. Assad died from her injuries days later. Prosecutors say Williams and Townsel followed Assad into the bathroom of Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, assaulted her, and stole her purse.


Investigators say a doctor told them the injuries were caused by “a great amount of force, such as being pushed, thrown, or punched by a 320-pound person,” the Riverside Press-Enterprise reports. Williams, the NBA star’s sister, is 6-foot-2 and weighs 320 pounds. Court records show that her previous convictions include attempted robbery, petty theft, grand theft, and grand theft auto. Leonard, who won the NBA title with the Toronto Raptors last season, recently signed a $103 million contract with the Clippers. Williams’ aunt confirmed to the Press-Enterprise that Williams is Leonard’s brother. “He didn’t have anything to do with this,” she said. (Read more NBA stories.)
