Judge sentences 'evil' stepmother to 20 years

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) A federal judge has sentenced a stepmother to 20 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to murder in the 2005 death of a 5-year-old child.

U.S. District Judge J. Michael Seabright also said Tuesday that Delilah Williams' plea deal with prosecutors for the sentence was necessary in the case against her husband, Naeem Williams.

Seabright says her testimony was key to prosecuting her husband, who delivered the fatal punch to the child.

Delilah Williams shook her head when given the opportunity to speak at the sentencing hearing.

The judge said the "evil" stepmother seemed to derive twisted pleasure from violently beating the child.

Jurors convicted Naeem Williams of murder but failed to agree on a sentence, allowing him to avoid execution.
