Man sentenced in murder of April Danna
UPDATE: Jaylan Williams was sentenced to 35 years in the death of April Danna on Monday.
BEAUMONT - A jury has convicted Jaylan Williams of murdering April Danna.
The jury in Judge John Stevens' court found Williams guilty Monday morning. The sentencing phase begins Monday afternoon. Williams faces up to life in prison.
Williams was convicted of stabbing and killing the 27-year-old victim in March of 2012.
Family members of Danna and Williams left the courtroom in tears last week when a police video was played and showed a dying Danna crying for help.
Danna's father told KFDM that Danna brought Williams to a family gathering less than a week before she died.
Danna's sister is raising the victim's five year old daughter.
