Toledo woman convicted of murder after representing herself in court

Melody Williams


A Toledo woman, who served as her own lawyer, during her murder trial was convicted on Friday.



A Lucas County Common Pleas Court jury found Melody Williams guilty after deliberating for less than 90 minutes.


The 49-year-old woman shot and killed L.C. Lyons, Jr. and then torched his Sylvania Township home to cover-up the July 2011 crime.


She faces life in prison when she's sentenced.
