The second homicide occurred in the 2900 block of W. 11th Street just after 10 a.m. Police were called to the home for a reported domestic incident with a male suspect reportedly admitting prior to officers’ arrival that he had killed his spouse.
Officers reported arriving on scene and discovering a deceased 51-year-old woman. She was later identified as 51-year-old Claudette Williams. A 61-year-old man, Curtis Williams, was taken into custody.
The Madison County Coroner’s Office will determine the official cause of death for both victims upon completion of an autopsy.
