U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Florida Fugitive in Connection with 2012 Murder

Harrisburg, PA. – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Sophia Williams, a 31-year old woman, for accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.

On February 10, Deputy U.S. Marshals and members of the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania arrested Williams in the 500 block of Erford Road in East Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County. Williams is being held pending judicial proceedings concerning her extradition to Florida.

On January 22, 2015, Williams was charged by the Rockledge Police Department in Brevard County, Florida with Accessory After the Fact-First Degree Premeditated Murder. It is alleged that Williams played a role in a November 2012 fatal shooting.

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 23 state, county and local police agencies, including the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, Dauphin County Adult Probation Office, and Pennsylvania Board of Probation – all of whom participated in this fugitive investigation. Additional assistance was provided by the East Pennsboro Township Police Department.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case ensured that a dangerous fugitive was taken off the streets. It is our top priority to arrest violent crime fugitives, especially those who have no regard for human life.”
