Jennifer, Carmichael

A: David Lamont Williams of Camino was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for the fatal stabbing of his friend, 22-year-old Scott Arthur Stewart.

Williams stabbed Stewart numerous times after the two got into a fight Nov. 1, 1982, at a Folsom residence, according to a story in The Sacramento Bee. He dumped Stewart’s body in a field near Folsom Junior High School and covered it with grass.

Williams was arrested after telling his Montrose Drive neighbors that he had stabbed a man. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Now 55 years old, Williams remains incarcerated at California State Prison, Corcoran.
