Quinn clemency includes woman who killed boyfriend
CHICAGO – Among the 81 pre-Thanksgiving clemency requests granted by Gov. Pat Quinn is a Chicago woman who stabbed her boyfriend to death 30 years ago in a killing that the prisoner review board found was in self-defense.
Felecia Williams killed her boyfriend, Lonnie Brown, in 1982 during a fight in which he struck her in the throat, choked her and threw a heavy decanter at her, according to documents from the prisoner review board. During the struggle, she ran to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed Brown as he ran toward her.
She was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years of probation and 120 days of periodic imprisonment.
