An Oklahoma woman has been pictured grinning in her mugshot just after she was arrested for the murder of her husband.
48-year-old Shanda Johnson-Williams was arrested on Tuesday, November 18 after her husband, Jamie Williams, 48, was found stabbed to death inside their home in Ft. Towson two days earlier.
According to a statement released by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, a 911 call was made Sunday to say that Williams had been found unresponsive at his home. By the time paramedics arrived at the premises, Williams was dead, with a medical examiner subsequently ruling that the cause of death was a single stab wound.
In her mugshot which was published online by authorities, Johnson-Williams was pictured grinning.
Reacting to the mugshot, a local law enforcement officer told Newsweek that the mugshot could be damaging for Johnson-Williams in the future.
‘The smiling photo won’t help her when showed at jury time,’ Sheriff Terry Park stated.
Johnson-Williams, who is currently being detained at Choctaw County Jail, is now facing a first-degree murder charge, which could see her receive a death penalty.
