ST. CLAIR COUNTY — A woman charged in connection to the death of Moody Police officer Lt. Stephen Williams, is asking for a bond.
According to court documents, Marquisha Tyson, 28, of Birmingham, claims she did not shoot a gun or anticipate the killing of Williams on the night of Tuesday, June 2. Williams was gunned down while responding to a disturbance call at the Super 8 in Moody.
Another suspect, Tapero Corlene Johnson, 27, of Birmingham, is also charged in the death. Both Tyson and Johnson face a capital murder charge. Neither have been given bond.
The latest filing from Tyson is asking for a $100,000 bond due to several circumstances. Tyson’s attorneys claim she has no prior felony offenses or arrests and is not a threat to herself or others.
Both Johnson and Tyson were set for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, July 7, 2020.
