The household stands guard in honor of a person who was killed by the ISP soldier

Last April, an ISP soldier killed Williams during a traffic obstruction. The prosecutor in the case ruled that the soldier would not face any charge.

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. – The mother of a man killed by an Indiana Trooper speaks up a year after her son died.

Malcolm Williams’ family held a memorial in his honor on Friday.

“Every day is a fight for me. I think I have to fight Malcolm the most because everything they said wasn’t who my son was,” said Tara Bryant, Williams’ mother. “And there was too much disagreement and I just wanted to get justice for him.”

Last April, an ISP soldier killed Williams during a traffic obstruction. The prosecutor in the case ruled that the soldier would not face any charge.

Williams’ family recently filed a lawsuit against the soldier. It is alleged that during the stop, Williams let the soldiers know that there was a pistol in the car. It is alleged that Williams dangled the gun and tried to hand it over to the soldier while repeating “here”.

At this point, Williams was shot several times by the soldier and hit him six times in the thigh, side and back.

The suit claims Williams never fired the gun or pointed it at anyone. The lawsuit also alleges that the soldier lied about the gunshots Williams fired in order to make his behavior appear justified.

The lawsuit seeks damages from the soldier, including legal proceedings.
