Jayson Williams, former NBA player, turned himself in to New Jersey state police Monday in connection with the fatal shooting of a chauffeur at his home in Alexandria Township. Williams is set to be charged with manslaughter.

The chauffeur, Costas Christofi of Seventy-Eight Limousine in Bloomsbury, N.J., was found shot to death at Williams' home on Feb. 14.

Published reports said Williams was twirling a shotgun ?playfully? during a tour of his 30,000-square foot home when the weapon went off, hitting Christofi.

Christofi had been hired to drive friends of the former NBA star from a Harlem Globetrotters charity game in Bethlehem, Pa., to his home.

Hunterdon County officials scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon about the investigation into the shooting.
