Quenterious “Woosie” Williams was returned to Vicksburg Thursday escorted by Vicksburg Police Department investigators after waiving extradition in Texas.

Williams was wanted in connection to the shooting death of Kelvion Winston on June 8.

Williams is charged with murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, and three counts of shooting into an unoccupied vehicle. At the time, Vicksburg Police Chief Penny Jones said in June the murder stemmed from “gambling gone bad.”

“They got him in one of the metro areas in Texas,” Jones said. “It definitely felt good, getting him, but also, we have been working in connection with the U.S. Marshals.”

Vicksburg Municipal Court Judge Angela Carpenter set Williams’ bond at $2.2 million and bound him over to the Warren County Grand Jury.
