Wife of soldier who killed daughter wants to leave Hawaii

HONOLULU — The attorney representing a woman who testified against her husband in his Hawaii capital-murder trial says she should be sentenced immediately, now that she’s satisfied terms of her plea deal.

But the judge says Delilah Williams’ sentencing has to wait until the trial against her husband is over.

Former Hawaii-based soldier Naeem Williams is charged with beating his 5-year-old daughter to death in 2005.

Delilah Williams testified that she inflicted months of abuse on her stepdaughter, Talia.

Assistant Federal Defender Alexander Silvert said in court documents Thursday his client spent nine years at Honolulu’s Federal Detention Center and wants to serve her sentence at a mainland facility. She wants a facility that offers “education, work and mental health treatment.”

Her deal calls for a 20-year sentence.
