Eric Williams was convicted of capital murder(s) and sentenced to death on 17 Dec 2014. The article below about his wife says that same year his law license, previously suspended, was revoked. However the TDCJ info on him says highest grade level completed is "GED." ??

His wife Kimberly Lene Williams testified against him at trial, and two weeks later pled guilty to murder and received a 40 year sentence, eligible for parole in 20. She testified that she and her husband also planned to kill a couple judges, but were arrested before they could do so. She pled guilty in the same court room that her husband had been convicted of stealing the computer equipment in.

There are a surprising number (6) of women named Kim or Kimberly Williams in the TDCJ system.

I was also wondering how many "Eric Williams'" there are and if the one you found with only a GED is the correct one.

I also can't believe it's been 4+ years since this happened. It doesn't seem like it's been that long.

I think that is the correct one. More than likely a former JP, and possibly a prosecuting attorney, may not have wanted to have all of his educational, and former employment info, which is public record, to be listed, since he was going to prison. It probably wouldn't make him very popular with his jail mates. Just sayin...

Yes I linked to the correct one. It describes the correct crime in the Summary of Incident, and the correct county that he came from (Kaufman). I thought the GED entry was odd, but the rest of the information matches.
