Teen Jailed For Murdering His Brother

September 28, 2016

A disagreement between two brothers escalated into violence Wednesday morning and ended with one of them being murdered and the other arrested.

Denzel Dywan Williams, 15, of 715 North H St., Pensacola, has been charged with second-degree murder.

His brother – Malik Kewsie Williams, 19, of the same address – died after he was stabbed twice, said Sgt. Stephen Bauer.

Police were dispatched to the residence around 12:20 p.m. after receiving a phone call regarding an armed disturbance at the residence.

Officers determined the brothers got into a verbal disagreement that escalated into a physical confrontation. While they were fighting, Denzel, who had been holding a knife, stabbed his brother.

Denzel Williams was taken into custody at the scene; Malik Williams died a short time later at a local hospital.

    This is beyond sad. He will have to live with what he did for the rest of his life. Prayers going up for the family. They’ve lost 2 sons now.
