CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that a Cuyahoga County grand jury has returned an indictment charging Tirrell Edwards, 41, for shooting and killing Amanda Williams, 46, in their shared residence in Warrensville Heights.

“A thorough investigation and review of this case led us to the unmistakable conclusion that the death of Amanda Williams was an intentional homicide without justification. Today, a grand jury composed of citizens from our county reached the same conclusion and voted to indict Tirrell Edwards. My thoughts and prayers remain with Amanda Williams’s family and friends. I urge Tirrell Edwards to turn himself in to law enforcement.”
