Two Toledo men wanted for the murder of Michael Williams, Jr., were indicted Tuesday by a Lucas County grand jury.
Rishad Williams, 21, of 421 W. Manhattan Blvd., and Tyrone Hoskins, Jr., 23, of 618 Woodland Ave., each were indicted for murder with firearms and gang specifications and for participating in a criminal gang. The charges stem from the Feb. 2 shooting of Michael Williams, Jr., 24, in the 1500 block of Ottawa Drive.
Mr. Williams was held Tuesday in the Lucas County jail. Mr. Hoskins has been wanted since a warrant charging him with murder was filed Feb. 22. He failed to appear Tuesday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court, where he was to go on trial before Judge Frederick McDonald on bribery and gang-participation charges from an unrelated case.
