Murder suspect's mom charged with helping

Evelyln Williams is charged with Accessory After the Fact of a Felon after police say she helped her son after he allegedly committed murder.

The mother of a Florence murder suspect has been charged for helping her son evade police.

Monday, Florence County deputies arrested Evelyn Williams on charges of Accessory After the Fact of a Felon.

Her son, Deon'te Williams, is charged with murder for the death of Miriam Burgess, 44.

Burgess was found stabbed to death after a fire at her home on Stackley Avenue in Florence nearly two weeks ago.

Deputies say after Williams killed Burgess, he went to his mother's home on East Boone Lane in Florence County.

Deputies say she allowed someone to use her car to drive her son to North Carolina, where he caught a bus to New Jersey.

Deputies say the driver had no idea what was going on. That person will not be charged.
