More Charges Filed Against Williams

Posted on March 13, 2002 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

Prosecutors filed more charges against ex-NBA star Jayson Williams on Monday, saying he tampered with evidence and obstructed justice in the shooting of chauffeur Costas Christofi at his home in New Jersey. Prosecutors are charging Williams of attempting to make the death of his limousine driver look like a suicide.

Prosecutors filed additional charges against Williams, who was charged last month of manslaughter, for hindering apprehension, two counts of tampering with evidence, one count of witness tampering and one count of conspiracy to obstruct the administration of law. Hunterdon County prosecutors allege that Williams wiped his fingerprints from the shotgun that killed Christofi.

According to a police affidavit, "the defendant attempted to imprint the victim's fingerprints upon the very same shotgun in an effort to convince investigators that the victim' s death had been self-inflicted."

Prosecutors further alleged that Williams removed the clothing he wore at the time of the shooting and gave investigators other clothing. They also allege that he tried to position the shotgun that killed Christofi at an angle to make it seem as if the limousine driver had committed suicide.

Prosecutors said Williams then others at his home to get rid of the clothes and to tell investigators they had been downstairs, rather than in the room next to his bedroom, where the shooting took place.

Williams did not enter a plea on any of the charges, and left the courthouse Tuesday on $20,000 bail; he was released after being charged with manslaughter last month on $250,000 bail.
