Keisha Williams, the Mother in Fatal Carjacking, Dies

The DA will bring new charges against the suspects in the incident.


The Inquirer reports that Keisha Williams, the mother of the three children killed in last month’s horrific carjacking, has died from injuries suffered in the attack. She was 34.

The funeral for the children — Keiearra Williams, 15, Thomas Reed, 10, and Terrence Moore, 7 — was Monday. Jonathan Rosa, 19, and Cornelius Crawford, 24, were arrested and charged with murder, kidnapping, sexual assault, and other offenses in the attack.

The District Attorney’s office has announced that Crawford and Rosa will now each face an additional murder charge: “Crawford and Rosa will now face four counts of Second Degree Murder and Conspiracy for the deaths of Keisha Williams and her three children; 15 year old Keiearra Williams, 10 year old Joseph Reed, and 7 year old Terrance Moore.”
