      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.
