On Friday, the killer of Angela Simmon’s former fiance was given a sentence of life in prison.
Sutton Tennyson, Simmons’ ex-fiance and father of her 5-year-old son, was fatally shot by Michael Williams outside of Suttons’ garage in 2018. A few days later, he surrendered to authorities. He had been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and murder. Tennyson was 37 when he died.
Williams was also given 15 years for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He will be eligible for parole in 30 years.
Reports indicate that Simmons, 34, provided an emotional testimony in court. She then shared her thoughts of the sentencing on Instagram.
“Justice served today! We got you! We got him,” she wrote.
On November 3, 2018, Tennyson was fatally shot after having a dispute with another man. He had been hit with at least twelve bullets when police discovered him deceased in his garage. The suspect had driven away before authorities had arrived.
After his death, Simmons had posted special messages to Tennyson. One of them read, “Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” she noted and included several family photos.
