LIMA — What was scheduled as a fairly routine sentencing hearing for a woman convicted of murder took a drastically unexpected turn Monday morning.
Marchion Williams, 40, listed in court documents as “homeless,” appeared in Allen County Common Pleas Court for sentencing after pleading guilty Sept. 5 to murder in the death of 40-year-old Eddie McClellan earlier this year. Ohio law called for Williams to be sentenced to a mandatory prison term of 15 years to life.
Several weeks ago, however, Williams sent a letter to Judge Jeffrey Reed stating that she was dissatisfied with the legal representation she received throughout her case from court-appointed public defender Bill Kluge. The attorney said he received a similar letter.
