Richard Williams Is Free Of Murder Charges


Columbia, MO, 8/6/2003

A former Veterans Affairs hospital
nurse who was accused of killing ten patients in 1992 is free.
Prosecutors in Missouri say the tests that led to murder charges against Richard Williams were flawed, so they asked to have the charges dismissed.
The Boone County prosecutor's office had plannedto seek the death penalty against Williams, who had been jailed since his arrest last summer.
Williams' attorney says the charges had been based on "junk science" pursued because of political and public pressure in the
high-profile case.
