October 18, 2017

CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Charles City man has been convicted of second-degree murder in the June shooting death of another man.

A Floyd County jury deliberated about two hours before finding 36-year-old Antoine Williams guilty Wednesday of killing 36-year-old Nathaniel Fleming on June 30 in Charles City. Williams faces up to 50 years in prison when he’s sentenced at a later date.

Police have said Williams shot Fleming, of Mason City, several times before pulling Fleming out of a vehicle and fleeing the scene. Williams testified Tuesday that he shot Fleming when he thought Fleming was reaching for a gun.
