Admitted Killer in Atlantic City Faces 25 Years in Prison

The Atlantic City man suspected of strangling a woman to death with a phone cord in a motel room and leaving her lifeless body in a van behind the city’s bus terminal will spend up to a quarter-century in prison, authorities say.

David J. Williams, 48, accepted a guilty plea for a charge of aggravated manslaughter for the death of Siddiqah Bryant, also of Atlantic City, in May 2012, according to information from acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain’s office.

Williams was charged with murder when he was arrested in Sinton, Texas on July 30, 2012, following an exhaustive search by Atlantic City and Sinton police.

He admitted strangling Bryant during a violent episode in a motel on May 16, 2012, placing her body in her van and leaving it behind the Arctic Avenue bus station, and escaping to Texas the following day, say investigators..

Pursuant to New Jersey’s No Early Release Act, Williams will be sentenced to 25 years and be required to serve at least 21 years, three months before parole eligibility. Sentencing is scheduled for January 31.
