The man who brutally murdered a Rochester teenager decades ago will be spending a long time behind bars. Yesterday, a judge ordered Timothy Williams to serve 25 years to life in prison for killing 14-year-old Wendy Jerome back in 1984. Williams avoided being arrested until DNA evidence was uncovered connecting him to the crime. Jerome’s mother says she’s glad to see Williams finally get what he deserves.

Attorneys on both sides of the civil lawsuit that seeks to hold social media companies liable for their alleged roles in the racist mass shooting at the Tops store on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo met yesterday to try and move the case forward. There had been a motion to dismiss the case under Section 230, a law that has historically shielded internet platforms from lawsuits over content posted by their users. However, the motion was denied by Judge Paula Feroleto; the plaintiffs contend that it was not just content but rather the decision by social media to repeatedly expose Payton Gendron to racist ideology, which radicalized him to the point of executing a plan to seek and kill Black people. Another motion was put forth yesterday to stall the case as more documents and evidence were gathered prior to trial. The judge has not ruled on that motion yet but did make it clear that she wants the case to move forward.
