Cops nab Ky. man wanted in wife's death

The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE - Police on Saturday captured a Louisville man indicted in Tennessee on murder charges in the death of his wife, who was found strangled in her car in June in Nashville.

Richard L. Williams, 36, was arrested about 3:45 p.m. at the 2600 block of West Jefferson St., said Alicia Smiley, spokeswoman for Louisville Metro Police.

Louisville police joined Nashville police in the search for Williams late last month after learning of the indictment. He is charged with killing Cassandra Williams, 35, whose body was discovered in her car June 9 near Interstate 65.

Richard Williams filed a missing-person report for his wife on June 4. He also told police they were having marital problems and she was heading to visit family in Savannah, Ga. Court records showed they filed emergency protective orders against each other in December.

Her relatives said they spoke with her last on June 2. She failed to arrive at work later that night.
