Former 'Most Wanted' man convicted of murder

Former 'Most Wanted' man convicted of murder

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - A man who was the subject of a reward placed by Douglas Police a year ago, was convicted of murder Tuesday, in a Coffee County courtroom.

Brandon Levi Williams, 31, was found guilty of the murder of 22-year-old Kavozia Walker on McNeal Drive in 2016.

He was featured on WALB's Most Wanted last year, and was arrested in Hollywood, Florida by U.S. Marshals.

He was charged with Malice Murder, Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and Possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Ian Sansot, Assistant District Attorney of the Waycross Judicial Circuit, said the best evidence against Williams was footage taken from the apartment complex where the murder occurred.

It showed Kavozia Walker attempting to break up a fight.  While Walker was tussling, Williams got a pistol from his vehicle, took three steps toward Walker, aimed his gun at pointblank range at Walker's neck, and fired.

"You don't get to take a person's life because they insulted you or because they were dangerous at some time in the past.  That's not self defense," said District Attorney George Barnhill.

Judge Andy Spivey, who presided over the proceedings, sentenced Brandon Williams to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Kavozia Sirvante Walker escaped death the year before he died.  He told police that he had been in his back yard when an individual known to him as 'Twan' approached his residence, and fired a handgun in his direction multiple times.
