A Dallas County jury today found a gay former Navy pastry chef guilty of murder in the 2009 stabbing death of his roommate’s girlfriend.
Daniel Willyam, 28, faces up to life in prison for the murder of Samantha “Shelley” Nance, 20.
Nance, a student at the Dallas Art Institute, was found stabbed 42 times at her Lake Highlands apartment.
Willyam, who also attended the Art Institute, was the roommate of Nance’s boyfriend, Nathan Shuck. Prosecutors say Willyam murdered Nance out of jealousy because he had become increasingly obsessed with Shuck.
The Dallas Morning News reports that the jury, which found Willyam guilty earlier today, is now weighing his sentence.
What the f*ck? What a psychopath!
Hulud, you don’t know anything about this. There was no reason for Daniel to be convicted. There was no evidence that is related to Daniel being the murderer. The Juries are ridiculous and ignorant.
Um yes they had every reason to convict this psycho. He had absolutely everything to do with her murder. Before you sit here and be disrespectful to the family, and friends of this amazing person who lost her life too soon, I suggest you take your own advice and study up really good on the facts of what happened. Oh and yes, they did find evidence linking him to her murder. Your such a douchebag.
We graduated together she was so smart. When we were applying for colleges one of the guys their said these exact words. “Look around you, some of you will go to school together, some will be in jail some far away and very few will pass away. She was killed 1 and half years later. Thats crazy. So sad. Ive lost about 6 friends since.
Is the Voice going to provide anything beyond the titillating and dramatic headline, tabloid-like pictures and sketchy article? Without additional information I feel like the Voice took advantage of the murder to add paranoia and shock to the publication.
SeriouslyRidiculous, YOU don’t know what you are talking about. DNA testing proved that the girl’s blood was found in the suspect’s apartment.
Im wondering if the boyfriend could have done it , because he and the guy shared an apartment together, and who leaves a baggy with the girls blood and hair ? looks like a frame up to me, get a re trial and a different lawyer, said the girl was break ing up with the boyfriend, looks like he was upset too, mayber?
Yes it looked like a frame up because Daniel tried to frame his roommate. (Shelley’s boyfriend) Except like most murderers he screwed up.
It is so…obvious that many of the people posting to this site are delusional and are friends or relatives of Willyam. He has obviously fooled the ones that are closest to him. Look at the evidence people! He was jealous and killed that poor innocent young lady. Shelley’s boyfriend should have known that something was wrong with that guy and should have moved out. I don’t know maybe the boyfriend was seeing both of them. Anyway, whatever the circumstances, Mr. Willyam is a very sick individual that is in the right place now. He now has many, many men to choose from.
What a psychopath no one has the right to take somebody else’s life hey Jury got it right hope he rots in hell
