Press: David Russell Williams Divorce Proceedings should be Publicon November 30, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
A lawyer working for the Ottawa Citizen and a coalition of news agencies has asked that the secret divorce proceedings of David Russell Williams be made public.
Williams was convicted of the rape and murder of two women in 2010. At the time, he was a colonel in the Canadian Forces, and commander of Canadian Forces Base Trenton.
According to a court order, Williams’ wife can only be referred to as M.E.H.
It seems that what is of interest in the proceedings is the expensive Ottawa house that Williams transferred to M.E.H. six weeks after he was charged. One of Williams’ victims charges that the house and other assets were fraudulently transferred to M.E.H. in the hope of protecting them from civil liability.
