SJAFB Airman Confesses To Killing Ex-Wife

A United States Air Force Airman stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro has confessed to killing his ex-wife in Martin County, Florida.

Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said Wednesday Steven Williams, 30, is charged in the murder of Tricia Todd. While Snyder did not say how Williams killed Todd, the Sheriff did say Williams “caused the death” of the woman. Snyder said the couple’s 2-year-old daughter was around at the time of the killing. Authorities have not found Todd’s body despite a week long search with cadaver dogs. Williams is charged with 2nd Degree Murder and child neglect. He is in the Martin County Jail without bond.

Though located at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, N.C., the unit is attached to the 82nd Training Wing, Air Education and Training Command, with headquarters at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas.

Detachment 1 provides formal, curriculum-based technical training support to the operational mission of the 4th Fighter Wing, and is one of 61 global detachments assigned to the 82nd Training Wing.
