Man found guilty in 2006 Ford City Mall shooting

September 28, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Eddie Fenton, 27, shot and killed Willie Williams III, 17, back in April of 2006 as Williams tried to break up a fight involving Fenton outside of the Ford City Theatre.

Williams' parents gave thanks to all those involved in the case.

"I got justice for my son, but there's no winners in this because not only did I lose my son, his mother lost hers too," said Indira Rutues, Williiams' mother.

Fenton wasn't arrested until 2010, four years after the murder. Before that he was a fugitive hiding in Iowa and Wisconsin.
