A Shelby County teen has been convicted of aggravated battery in the case of thirteen year old Alexis Williams, who died of an asthma attack within hours of a fight that occurred on June 17th. A Shelby County Judge found the teen guilty last week, saying that the case was “sad”.
Witnesses have said a fight broke out in Forrest Park in Shelbyville following a verbal argument between Williams and the teen. The Teen said that Williams had said many hurtful words towards her prior to the fight, and seemed to be troubled, having self inflicted injuries on her arms.
Sentencing has been scheduled for June 5th.
