Darrel Williams

Darrel Williams, who was initially indicted for the capital offence of murder, admitted to unlawfully killing Elvis Aulicio, a 44-year-old Brazilian national on December 26, 2018.
Sentencing for Williams, who is currently on remand, will take place on October 28.
Reports state that Aulicio and Williams, who were known to each other, were imbibing at a birthday celebration when Williams accused him of stealing a haversack, which he denied.
Williams, who became annoyed, armed himself with a knife, and followed Aulicio as he made his way into Moco Moco Savannahs.
He stabbed Aulicio in the neck and left him there to die. He was first charged with the man’s murder on December 31, 2018.
