Days later, Williams turned himself in to the authorities and was charged with murder, having a gun while committing a crime, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, PEOPLE reported. At 37, Tennyson.
According to TMZ, Williams was also given a 15-year sentence as a convicted felon for having a gun in his hands. After at least 30 years, he will be eligible for parole.
Simmons, 34, responded to the sentence on Instagram after apparently giving an emotional deposition before the court on Friday. “Today, justice was done! You’re in good hands with us! We captured him, “She wrote next to touching pictures of herself, Tennyson, and her son Sutton.

Tennyson was shot and died on Nov. 3, 2018, right outside his house, after an apparent disagreement with another guy turned violent. He had nearly a dozen gunshot wounds when police discovered his body in his garage and declared him dead. After firing several bullets, the perpetrator “sped from the scene in a car,” local police told PEOPLE.
Williams turned himself into the neighborhood police less than a week after Tennyson’s passing. At the time, his attorney informed the investigators not to question Williams after accompanying his client to the Atlanta Police Headquarters.
Simmons published several heartfelt remembrances of her son’s father shortly after the tragedy. “Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” Simmons captioned a series of family shots.
“I’m hurting. I’m numb. Thank you for the outpouring of love, everyone,” she continued, adding that she couldn’t “believe I’m even saying Rest in Peace Sutton.”
