“Northwest Roanoke apartment shooting leads to manslaughter plea”
Roanoke Times, January 29, 2021
ROANOKE — “A violent dispute at a northwest Roanoke apartment complex last winter left one victim dead by gunfire and will send another man to prison for just over five years.
The case was resolved by plea agreement Friday, at a hearing initially slated as an arraignment ahead of a two-day murder trial that was to begin next week in Roanoke Circuit Court.
During Friday’s hearing, Camron Gil Williams, 20, opted instead to plead no contest to an amended count of voluntary manslaughter in the death of 25-year-old Naison Brewer.
When he was indicted last February, Williams was charged with murder and with possessing a gun as a felon and using it in a killing. As part of Williams’ plea, the murder charge was reduced and the firearm offenses dropped.”
