Williams bound over in Harmony Food murder case

MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee County judge on Friday, November 30th found there's enough evidence to bind Deangelo Williams over for further proceedings. Williams is the teen charged for his connection to the murder of Dalbir Singh at the Harmony Food store.

Williams faces two felonies for allegedly being connected to the murder of a convenience store worker through an attempted robbery — he faces first-degree reckless homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon.

56-year-old Dalbir Singh was fatally shot Wednesday night, August 15th at the Harmony Food store near 38th and Locust. Authorities say Singh was shot around 9 p.m. during what appears to be an attempted armed robbery.

The criminal complaint against Williams says he confronted Singh and waved a gun at him. Singh and his nephew, Jatinder Singh, ran inside the store, slamming the door and trying to keep it shut to prevent Williams from getting in. 

The complaint indicates that as the Singhs were holding the door, “there was a gunshot from outside the door that penetrated the door and hit Dalbir Singh in the forehead.”

Jatinder Singh told police Williams had been in the store just prior to the shooting. 

If convicted of the charges, Williams faces up to 60 years in prison. His next court appearance is set for February 1, 2013.
