38 Year Sentence in Kent Murder Case


On May 31, the defendant in a Kent Murder and drive-by shooting case was sentenced to a total of 457 months, the high-end of the standard range and the amount requested by King County Prosecutors

At the time of sentencing, the Court heard directly from the deceased victim’s family and friends, as well as his fiancé.

Following trial, which concluded in April, the defendant, Marcus Bradley Williams, was found guilty by a jury of Murder in the Second Degree with a Firearm Enhancement for the murder of Jovan Satterwhite. The defendant was also found guilty of two counts of Drive-By Shooting and two counts of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm in the First Degree.

Each of these incidents involved deadly (or potentially deadly) violence unleashed by the defendant on total strangers with no or minimal provocation.
