Justin Williams is accused of brutally murdering his girlfriend and dismembering her body in Brooklyn six weeks ago. Williams was charged Monday with murder and concealment of a human corpse in the slaying of 22-year-old D’Asia Johnson, in September.
Johnson’s life came to a horrific end after months of beatings and broken bones she suffered at the hands of Williams, as earlier revealed by neighbors.
Police conducting a wellness check found Johnson’s decomposing remains in her blood-splattered bathroom on Linwood St. near Atlantic Ave. in Cypress Hills on Sept. 21. Her dismembered body was found jammed into two suitcases, next to a meat cleaver.
She died of multiple stab wounds to her torso, an autopsy later revealed.
After two months of investigation, police arrested and charged Johnson’s boyfriend 24-year-old Justin Williams of West 116 Street in Harlem, New York.
“This defendant is accused of the horrific murder and dismemberment of his former girlfriend,” Brooklyn District Attorney said Monday.
“I hope that this prosecution brings some measure of solace to D’Asia’s family and friends.”
Johnson’s boyfriend would routinely beat her in the hallway, the woman’s friend and neighbor said.
“He broke her ribs, her legs, a couple months ago,” Stephanie Harris said after the grisly find.
“She came back, she was on crutches. And he broke her apartment down, broke the TVs in her apartment. And I cried to her, like ‘Listen, I don’t want to see you on the news.’”
Police arrested Williams on Oct. 1 on an unrelated assault, grand larceny and bail jumping case n Nassau County, he’s been locked up since that arrest,.
Nassau County Assistant District Attorney Brittany Gurrieri revealed in court that Williams was a person of interest in Johnson’s slaying.
Furthermore it was revealed at his appearance in Nassau court that Williams had another girlfriend, who was using Johnson’s benefits card after her death.
