Trial set for woman charged in ’11 murder


Melody Williams


A December trial date was set in Lucas County Common Pleas Court for a Toledo woman charged for the shooting death of a man found in the charred remains of his Sylvania Township home.

Melody Williams, 48, of of 2110 14th St., pleaded not guilty Monday to aggravated murder and aggravated robbery, each with a gun specification. Judge Ruth Ann Franks set a Dec. 17 trial date and continued a $1.5 million bond set last week when Ms. Williams first appeared in court.

Ms. Williams is charged with the death of L.C. Lyons, Jr., whose body was found July 4, 2011, inside his home at 5128 Inland Drive. An autopsy later revealed that he had been shot in the head.

If convicted, Ms. Williams faces up to life in prison.
