Suspect in UT student’s killing behind bars in Tampa

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

David Williams has been behind bars for quite some time, just not in Hillsborough County.

But now he sits in a Hillsborough County jail, and for the father of the man Williams is accused of killing, it is a relief.

"It's not easy to get up everyday," Kevin McCall said. "Every morning, you think about it every morning, and what you had to do to tell your children and your wife what happened."

Williams is accused of killing Kevin's son, Ryan, in August 2009. The University of Tampa student was walking home with a friend from a bar at the North Boulevard Bridge when investigators say he was robbed and killed.

Williams has been in a Miami prison serving time for several other crimes. Williams has admitted he robbed McCall and his friend, but he has denied that he killed anyone.

Williams, 22, is set to make his first appearance Friday in Tampa.

Kevin McCall said he plans on watching court proceedings. He also said when the case goes to trial, it will just be another hurdle for his family.
