Jurors returned a guilty verdict this afternoon in the trial of the man accused of murdering and dismembering his partner in an indoor marijuana-growing operation.
Joshua Williams, 27, did not take the witness stand before deliberations began on Tuesday. He was convicted of second-degree murder, commercial promotion of marijuana, unauthorized control of a vehicle and arson.
During the trial, jurors viewed a videotaped interview of Williams telling Honolulu police he and another man killed Jamil Khan in April last year in self-defense, dismembered Khan’s body and disposed of it in a curbside trash bin.
Police have not recovered Khan’s body.
The other man, Michael Connolly, 25, is scheduled to stand trial in February.
