Williams sentenced to 31-years-to-life in slaying, shooting

Dreon A. Williams was sentenced today to 31 years-to-life for the Aug. 6, 2010, shooting death of Anthony Harrison and the wounding of Harrison’s friend.

The shooting occurred as the victims walked home from a Campbell church festival.

Judge R. Scott Krichbaum of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court handed down the sentence. A jury on Tuesday convicted Williams of murder in Harrison’s death and of attempted murder and felonious assault in the wounding of Eric Van Cobb, with firearm specifications, and tampering with evidence.
