"He shot her five times right there in front of me, my momma and her two-year-old son was watching. Her two-year old son said 'Daddy, no, stop fighting my Momma,' he ignored that, how can a man do that?" asked Washington.

Washington said her niece intended to get a restraining order against Williams after breaking up with him two weeks ago. She said the couple's two-year-old son is traumatized by what he saw.

"He wakes up in the middle of the night screaming and hollering... he want his Momma. He don't have a Momma now," Washington said.
