    Day 2: Trial in Tecumseh officer’s death continues

    By Kim Morava
    Shawnee News Star

    An exchange of text messages was among the testimony and evidence presented Wednesday as the trial for a woman accused of second degree murder in the death of a Tecumseh police officer continues in Pottawatomie County.

    A jury of six men and six women, along with two alternates, is hearing the trial of Brooklyn Danielle Williams, 24, before District Judge John G. Canavan Jr.

    During Tuesday’s opening arguments, District 21 Prosecutor Pattye High read the charges to the jury, outlining that Williams is accused, on or about March 26, 2017, of engaging in the felony offense of harboring a fugitive and concealing Byron James Shepard, a person she knew to be a fugitive from justice.

    While she was in the commission of that felony, charges allege Shepard, 37, who was the passenger in a vehicle being driven by Williams and stopped by Officer Terney, fired a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol into the abdomen of the officer, causing mortal wounds.

    High told jurors that Officer Terney, at 22 years old, had been on the job as a Tecumseh police officer for just 192 days before he died.

    So far, the trial has included numerous law enforcement witnesses and the jury watching videos, including the dash camera video from Terney’s patrol car.

    The night of the traffic stop, Williams sat in the driver’s seat of the vehicle as her passenger, who had an outstanding felony warrant and was a fugitive with a gun, was outside of the vehicle giving Terney a false name, according to presented testimony.

    After Terney was shot, Williams told police she didn’t know who Shepard was and that she had just moved to Tecumseh a day earlier.

    Witnesses, including an Okfuskee County sheriff’s deputy, have already testified that Williams knew for weeks that Shepard was a fugitive being sought by authorities, and based on Wednesday’s text messages read in court, the two had an ongoing relationship and shared texts indicating a plan about establishing a residence together in Tecumseh.

    Some of the exchanged messages, many of them with expletives, were about law enforcement, with one message from Williams to Shepard sent just hours before Terney was shot. In that message, she warned Shepard there was a highway patrol trooper on SH 9, according to testimony.

    Prosecutors, during Wednesday’s testimony, referenced nearly 1,200 text messages as having some type of connection to this case.

    After the shooting that night, in which Officer Terney returned fire, Shepard was wounded and has since recovered. Shepard faces a first-degree murder charge in the officer’s death and has pleaded not guilty in his case.

    The prosecution will continue presenting its case in Williams’ trial on Thursday.

    Guilty verdict: Pott. County jury convicts woman in Tecumseh police officer’s death

    By Kim Morava
    Shawnee News Star

    A Pottawatomie County jury returned a guilty verdict Friday afternoon for a woman on trial for second degree murder in the death of Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney.

    The week-long trial of Brooklyn Danielle Williams, 24, began with jury selection Monday and was held before District Judge John G. Canavan Jr.

    With a courtroom gallery full of spectators, including about 30 law enforcement officers from many agencies, the jury heard instructions and final arguments Friday morning. After deliberating a little more than two hours, the jury of six men and six women returned with the guilty verdict early Friday afternoon.

    The jury has recommended Williams should serve 25 years in prison, but formal sentencing has been scheduled for March 13.

    Williams was accused, on or about March 26, 2017, of engaging in the felony offense of harboring a fugitive and concealing Byron James Shepard, a person she knew to be a fugitive from justice.

    While she was in the commission of that felony, charges allege Shepard, 37, who was the passenger in a vehicle being driven by Williams and stopped by Officer Terney, fired a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol into the abdomen of the officer, causing mortal wounds.

    During the trial, Prosecutor Pattye High told jurors that Officer Terney, at 22 years old, had been on the job as a Tecumseh police officer for just 192 days before he died.

    The trial included numerous law enforcement witnesses and the jury watching videos, including the dash camera video from Terney’s patrol car.

    Also entered into evidence were numerous text messages exchanged between Williams and Shepard.

    Larry Monard served as the defense attorney for Williams.

    District 21 Cleveland County prosecutors Pattye High and Travis White represented the state for this trial with assistance from local Investigator Anthony Lee. The prosecutors were appointed to the case after former District 23 Pottawatomie County District Attorney Richard Smothermon recused the office from this case.

    Shepard, who was shot and wounded by Terney the night of the traffic stop, recovered from his wounds and has been jailed in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center without bond on a first-degree murder charge.
    Shepard’s trial is expected in November.

    Williams is jailed in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center awaited formal sentencing.

    Sentencing postponed for woman convicted in Tecumseh officer’s death

    By Kim Morava
    Shawnee News Star

    A woman convicted by a Pottawatomie County jury of second-degree murder for her role in the death of Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney was scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday but that hearing was rescheduled.

    After a week-long trial, a jury on Feb. 1 found Brooklyn Danielle Williams, 24, guilty of second-degree murder.

    Williams was accused, on or about March 26, 2017, of engaging in the felony offense of harboring a fugitive and concealing Byron James Shepard, a person she knew to be a fugitive from justice.

    While she was in the commission of that felony, charges allege Shepard, 37, who was the passenger in a vehicle being driven by Williams and stopped by Officer Terney, fired a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol into the abdomen of the officer, causing mortal wounds.

    Second-degree murder can be punishable by 10 years to life in prison; the jury has recommended a 25-year prison term. Sentencing is now scheduled Friday.
