The son of Dallas Cowboys’ legend Erik Williams is facing some serious charges that could cost him his life if the allegations prove to be true. Cassius Shakembe Williams, 20, and another unidentified man have been arrested and charged in connection with a pair of killings in suburban Dallas, reported Tuesday. Both men are currently being charged with two separate counts of capital murder in the shooting deaths of two men June 12 in Mesquite, Texas. “Officials believe the victims were attempting to sell marijuana to Williams and his friend, when the buyers pulled out guns and demanded they hand over the weed. Shots were fired and the two alleged dealers were killed. Capital murder is essentially the same as 1st degree murder — and if convicted, it carries the death penalty.” Bonds have been set at $500,000 for each charge, totaling $1 million for each suspect. – TO
