I just learning with my husband last night yeah right that I can maybe said that once or twice or ten times since you all right yeah definitely we definitely hear that so that was a bit strange she describes her relationship is that she basically automatically fell in love with him that night she thought they had had discussions about the two of them being a couple of being an item the prosecutor Jennifer Johnson poster on the fact that you know about any other females are involved as life at least a wrist two names that she throughout their at Albany Wiley and she had no idea who those women were she thought she was it and this was gonna be a long term story yeah and so then you fast forward to Friday may sixteenth twenty fourteen is the date that allegedly Richie kills off which Williams and to this day he'd start calling our during the day she gets off work he comes by to pick her up she works for a home health care group were and we found out today also that Felicia Williams had started showing up to your will have any while he's worked out was causing some problems in mind you this is a nine year old child yeah so there's some strange odd things I would say in terms of the other and all of this is right and so there was a conversation where we sure are ebony Wiley says that I need to talk to about the fact that she was the relegation to she was stealing from her sister stealing money from our mom day to you possibly could have gotten suspended from school and she was not staying home during the suspension so there is some indication that there were some problems in the home yeah with Felicia in terms of her relationship with her family and her relationship with ebony Wiley which was kind of it almost seems like warmer the dole relationship right right so on that particular day she goes and picks up. she doesn't accept ebony Wiley and then they go over to Felicia Williams's house they pick up we should Williams the other sisters won a gold tag along for whatever reason they said every while he says I don't want them to go along guide this was fully just time and she basically explains how she divides up the time with them yeah so they thought she thought that they were going to go to you know the Donald's got something to eat with Felicia and they don't have any at this point doesn't think anything of of Granville Richie rich thinks he's a nice guy she describes him when they first got when he when Felicia gets in the car with them that she is like nothing I suspected nothing he was very comfortable with her shoes very comfortable with him they they thought they were going to make Donald and when Felicia's kind or not ebony starts to wonder like where are we going because you start driving towards his apartment not the McDonald's is nearby in temple terrace okay and so she kind of says like Hey we're we going is like what we got to my part of my mom's you know cooking your food we can eat there well that sounds reasonable right so Felicia kind says like I thought that was a little weird because I have a nine year old in the car and I'm not I'm pretty sure she's not going to enjoy someone else is cooking you know that she doesn't know a complete stranger okay so that's kind of what she was kind of like I don't know that the whole thing like I I it is odd to me that a guy would be so willing unlike the second date. nine year old who's not the woman's daughter right so there are a lot of red flags here yeah going on one of my name saying well I was going to take you guys back to my place my mom's cooking a nice meal I I that doesn't sound so crazy I guess yeah yeah I I don't know I don't have yeah I don't go on dates of people with kids is that right right right I don't know but anyway she commits a sin to go to checkers to get something to eat for Felicia the two of them do not eat so you just go to the drive through he pays for the food they eventually make their way back to the apartment and so Felicia ends up she finishes up eating once they get inside however in the car before ebony and Granville rich gather car he gives are another Molly pale ecstasy so she's already starting to do drugs with the nine year old child Sybil and so then it comes to the point where they're up in the apartment he says to her I pulled her aside in the kitchen she says I'm already feeling the effects of the ecstasy I felt intoxicated and he says Hey you know we're we can score some weed and so she says well yeah my granddaddy can hook us out so she called her grandfather Allah grandfather because our grandfather and he lives about twenty minutes away he says come on by there's a gentleman named beau that she would buy wheat from he was at her grandfather's house so he took she tells Richie Hey I'm gonna go to my grandfather's house is well how you gonna get there and so she's already you know actually what she tells we should we should come on come with me and he was gonna let her borrow the car recess now with us like you don't want to be stoned out there and driving around with the cut child in the car you know she can stay here with me. so so she never really thought nothing of it yet so I have any on on on a date with the guy a second day of the guy that you're really doesn't know that three thirty in the afternoon three thirty in the afternoon she brings along a nine year olds determines that it's a smart idea to do ecstasy and then leave the nine year olds with this guy that she really doesn't know that well in order to go pick up pot for him because he doesn't depart. so she leaves she's gone from by her testimony and which matches up with what I read the police report she's gone for about forty to fifty minutes so when the investigation starts the next day when she was reported missing in the police get involved they have her cell phone number they have his cell phone number eventually so they start doing the cell phone pings off the towers to figure out who was we are doing what time yeah so her window was she was gone for about fifteen minutes between the time she left and last saw ebony or I'm sorry police are alive goes to pick up the weed makes it back to that the apartment a temple terrace at which time when she gets back there she's having trouble getting in the gate and he was gay code number she says a gay code number doesn't work she's on the phone with him he says I simply show over she wanted candy source center over to CVS which is right down the street okay he starts explaining she hasn't come back and so that becomes his cover story Hey she went off to CVS he led a nine year old go alone totally responsible ands and I say that sarcastically and then she hasn't come back rice white she's missing right ebony does not freak out at this point which I thought was a little weird in the testimony I guess I at this point nothing surprising me anymore now and so she tells the prosecutors today and the jury that she was telling Granville's like you'll calm down she if she you know she takes her sweet time going places in coming back or whatever so she's arguing with him about the gate code and mentally cave comes in what's Iran should back up to the apartment he's as no shirt on he lives in the second floor of the apartment complex he's freaking out will wear issue why don't you come back so she's trying to calm him down at first that's crazy and it was you know then it you know when our goes by it's now like a game around six o'clock that she starts to worry because she hasn't come back yet but then she's still feeling the effects of the the Molly so she says that she goes into a closet so she can pray and calm herself down. she comes out of the closet she takes a shot of Hennessy and why not he is now rolling a joint okay and they proceed to have sex on the floor and all that that's. this is a great great couple to be watching a nine year old yeah so by this point around about from what I can gather it's around eleven o'clock now nine ten o'clock now because the cell phone tower sites put him driving out to the Cordy Campbell around eleven to been night which is where he dumped her body the suitcase comes into play I think what we're going to discover in the testimony cause we stop with her today she doesn't.

terms of the other and all of this is right and so there was a conversation where we sure are ebony Wiley says that I need to talk to about the fact that she was there allegations that she was stealing from her sister stealing money from our mom day to you possibly could have gotten suspended from school and she was not staying home during the suspension so there is some indication that there were some problems in the home yeah with Felicia in terms of her relationship with her family and her relationship with ebony Wiley which was kind of it almost seems like warmer to dole relationship right right so on that particular day she goes and picks up. she doesn't accept ebony Wiley and then they go over to Felicia Williams's house they pick up we should Williams the other sisters won a gold tag along for whatever reason they said every while he says I don't want them to go along guide this was fully just time and she basically explains how she divides up the time with them yeah so they thought she thought that they were going to go to you know the Donald's got something to eat with Felicia and you don't have any at this point doesn't think anything of of Granville Richie she thinks he's a nice guy she describes him when they first got when he when Felicia gets in the car with them that she is like nothing I suspected nothing he was very comfortable with her shoes very comfortable with him they they thought they were going to McDonald's and when fallacious kind or not ebony starts to wonder like where are we going because you start driving towards his apartment not the McDonald's is nearby in temple terrace okay and so she kind of says like Hey we're we going is like what we got to my part of my mom's you know cooking your food we can eat there well that sounds reasonable right so Felicia kind says like I thought that was a little weird because I have a nine year old in the car and I'm not I'm pretty sure she's not going to enjoy someone else is cooking you know that she doesn't know a complete stranger okay so that's kind of what she was kind of like I don't know that the whole thing like I I it is odd to me that a guy would be so willing unlike the second date. nine year old who's not the woman's daughter right so there are a lot of red flags here yeah going on one of my name saying well I was going to take you guys back to my place my mom's cooking a nice meal I I that doesn't sound so crazy I guess nine yeah yeah I I don't know I don't have yeah I don't go on dates of people with kids right right right I don't know but anyway she commits a sin to go to checkers to get something to eat for Felicia the two of them do not eat so you just go to the drive through he pays for the food they eventually make their way back to the apartment and so Felicia ends up she finishes up eating once they get inside however in the car before ebony and Granville rich gather car he gives are another Molly tell ecstasy so she's already starting to do drugs with the nine year old child Sybil and so then it comes to the point where they're up in the apartment he says to her I pulled her aside in the kitchen she says I'm already feeling the effects of the ecstasy I felt intoxicated and he says Hey you know we're we can score some weed and so she says well yeah my granddaddy can hook us out so she called her grandfather Allah grandfather she got her grandfather and he lives about twenty minutes away he says come on by there's a gentleman named beau that she would buy weed from he was at her grandfather's house so he took she tells Richie Hey I'm gonna go to my grandfather's house is well how you gonna get there and so she's already you know I said well she tells we should we should come on come with me and he was gonna let her borrow the car recess now with us like you don't want to be stoned out there and driving around with the cut child in the car you know she can stay here with me. so so she never really thought nothing of it yet and SO Albany on on on a date with the guy a second they were the guy that you're really doesn't know that three thirty in the afternoon three thirty in the afternoon she brings along a nine year olds determines that it's a smart idea to do ecstasy and then leave the nine year olds with this guy that she really doesn't know that well in order to go pick up pot for him for she doesn't depart. so she leaves she's gone from by her testimony and which matches up with what I read the police report she's gone for about forty to fifty minutes so when the investigation starts the next day when she was reported missing in the police get involved they have her cell phone number they have his cell phone number eventually so they start doing the cell phone pings off the towers to figure out who was we are doing what time period so her window was she was gone for about fifteen minutes between time she left and last saw ebony or I'm sorry Felicia alive goes to pick up the weed makes it back to that the apartment a temple terrace at which time when she gets back there she's having trouble getting in the gate and he was gay code number she says a gay code number doesn't work she's on the phone with him he says I simply show over she wanted candy source center over to CVS which is right down the street okay he starts explaining she hasn't come back and so that becomes his cover story detailing Hey she went off to CVS he led a nine year old go alone totally responsible ands and I say that sarcastically and then she hasn't come back right white she's missing right ebony does not freak out at this point which I thought was a little weird in the testimony I guess I at this point nothing surprising me anymore now and so she tells the prosecutors today and the jury that she was telling Granville's like you'll calm down she if she you know she takes her sweet time going places in coming back or whatever so she's arguing with him about the gate code and mentally cave comes in what's Iran should back up to the apartment he's has no shirt on he lives in the second floor of the apartment.
