It took only 15 minutes inside a Leon County courtroom Wednesday to bring 18 years of mystery surrounding the disappearance of Mike Williams to finality. His widow, 48-year-old Denise Williams, was sentenced to the mandatory charge of life in prison without the possibility of parole for her role in his murder on Dec. 16, 2000. She received an additional 30 years in prison for conspiring to kill him. Just as she had during her trial in December, Williams sat stone-faced while Mike Williams’ mother asked Leon Circuit Judge James Hankinson to order her locked up for the rest of her life.
