Dominique Williams ordered held without bail

Dominique Williams’ attorney argued there was not enough probable cause to hold his client for the murder of Marcellus Green because of varying witness accounts.

Judge Renee Raymond decided probable cause did exist and ordered Williams held without bail until his preliminary hearing set for August 1.

Williams and Steven Pugh have been charged with Green’s murder last September.

Williams was presented in court Thursday where his attorney, Kevin Irving, said the arrest warrant includes multiple witness accounts with different identifications of the shooter in this case.

The prosecution said even though there were discrepancies with the shooter’s description,  there were multiple witness accounts confirming Williams as part of the incident.
