    CA - Hendrika Williams, 48, shot to death with nail gun, 22 Oct 2005

    A California man has been charged with murdering his estranged wife by shooting her in the head with a nail gun.

    Richard Williams was arrested Saturday after spending five weeks in a hospital for nail gun wounds to his chest and abdomen.

    Officials say Williams wasn't arrested immediately after the Oct. 22 incident because Nevada County would have been at least partly responsible for his hospital bills. Instead, guards were stationed outside his hospital room 24 hours a day, waiting for him to recover.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Judge Thomas Anderson sentenced Williams to life in prison without the possibility of parole for killing his wife, Hendrika "Hetty" Williams. Williams strangled her and shot her three times with a high-powered nail gun Oct. 22, 2005...

    A Napa County jury found Williams guilty last November of first-degree murder with use of a deadly weapon and the enhancement of lying in wait.
