Williams cuts baby from womb, gets death penalty for kidnap, murder

27 March 1998


A jury has sentenced Jacqueline Williams, the 31-year-old convicted triple murderer, to death for the 1995 murders of Debra Evans and two of her children.

A six-man, six-woman jury took more than four hours to deliberate this afternoon on whether the 31-year-old suburban Chicago woman should die for the November 1995 slayings.

Evans’ full-term son, Elijah, now 2, was cut from his mother’s womb in her Addison apartment but survived.
