VIDEO: Convicted Killer Beaten By Sons Of Victim During Courtroom Brawl

Convicted murderer Dale Williams was later sentenced to 23 years to life for killing the men's mother.

Youngstown, OH – A convicted murderer was attacked by his victim’s children inside an Ohio courtroom on Thursday (video below).

The incident occurred during the sentencing hearing of 62-year-old Dale Williams, who previously confessed to having killed his former girlfriend, 46-year-old Elizabeth Pledger, CNN reported.

Pledger was murdered in 2017, after Williams ran her off the road and fatally shot her, according to Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene.

The victim’s sister was preparing to deliver her victim’s impact statement alongside Pledger’s son, 30-year-old Anthony Dees, when Dees suddenly rushed towards his mother’s killer, video footage showed.

Anthony leapt over a courtroom table, and managed to force his way past courtroom deputies to get to Williams.

As he pummeled his mother’s killer, his younger brother, 23-year-old Jerome Stuart Dees, jumped into the melee, and the duo proceeded to punch and kick Williams repeatedly.

One of the deputies deployed his Taser, striking Jerome, and both brothers were immediately taken into custody.

"He killed my mother, man," Jerome told the officers as he was being handcuffed. "That was my mama. She took care of me, bro."

The brothers have been charged with felony obstruction of official business, misdemeanor assault, and contempt of court.

They were scheduled to be arraigned on Friday, but their hearings were postponed until Monday due to a bomb threat at the courthouse, CNN reported.

Williams was transported to a hospital to be checked out after the attack, according to WBAL.

His sentencing hearing was postponed as a result of the brawl.

On Monday, Williams was sentenced to 23 years to life for killing Pledger, WKBN reported.

I feel for these men. I wish I could understand what the deputy was saying to him when he was saying, "He killed my mother, man!". I couldn't and can't imagine being in that position. What a senseless killing.

There was a case just like this a few weeks ago. The guy punched the man who murdered his sister. He got 6 months for "contempt of court". He only got one punch in.

My conscience would not show these men to be convicted of contempt. Maybe told to break forlunch to cool off, but not tased and charged. That's the problem with murderers! They are let to live in luxury compared to senior citizen homes.
