A Kansas City, Kan., murder suspect arrested Friday afternoon in Detroit is expected to appear before a Michigan judge Monday to determine if he will fight extradition to Kansas.
Lee Edward Williams, 24, is charged in Wyandotte County District Court with first-degree murder in the Sept. 4 shooting death of Ty’Shai Carvin. He is also charged with illegally possessing a firearm.
Carvin, 20, the mother of a 2-year-old boy, was shot multiple times inside a relative’s house in the 1900 block of N. 15th Street.
Family members said that Williams and Carvin had dated, but she was trying to break off the relationship.
A $500,000 bond was set in the murder case.
According to court records, Williams is also on probation for a drug distribution conviction, and authorities filed a motion to revoke his probation the day after the killing.
