Jury in Hawaii deadlocks; ex-soldier to get life

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A former soldier convicted of killing his 5-year-old daughter will spend the rest of his life behind bars after a federal jury failed to agree on his sentence in the first death penalty trial in Hawaii since it became a state.

Jurors deliberated for about seven days before telling the judge they were deadlocked on Naeem Williams' sentence. That means U.S. District Judge J. Michael Seabright will give Williams life in prison without the possibility of release.

Seabright set an Oct. 14 hearing to formally sentence Williams.

Williams showed no reaction when the jury's decision was read Friday.

Talia's mother, Tarshia Williams, told The Associated Press by phone she was glad her daughter got justice.

Talia's stepmother, Delilah Williams, testified against her husband as part of a deal with prosecutors for a 20-year sentence.
