Johnston City woman accused in southern Illinois stabbing death


MARION, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois woman is accused of fatally stabbing another woman, then fleeing before ultimately being arrested in Tennessee.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports prosecutors in Williamson County have charged 30-year-old Tamara Williams of Johnston City with four counts of first-degree murder. One of those counts alleges the killing involved an aggravated vehicular hijacking.

The body of 66-year-old Barbara Beers was found Friday afternoon in a yard just south of Marion.

Williams later was arrested in Lavergne, Tenn.

Online court records don't show whether Williams has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.
