According to Jacksonville Fire and Rescue, a woman was shot to death Monday morning at Normandy Park. The victim was identified as Ta’Liyah Williams.
The reports say the victim’s body was found between the parking lot and the athletic fields on Lindsey Road at Greek Road. Records say one shot was fired after an argument.
“One pop and then JSO came on the place,” said Luke McMillan, who heard the gunshot. “They’ve done an outstanding job and they continue to do so,” Luke added.
Ta’Liyah’s uncle, Timothy Williams said she had been trying to leave an abusive relationship. “Ta’Liyah was a beautiful soul. And she didn’t deserve this. She didn’t deserve this at all. She deserved better,” Timothy said.
“What I hope can happen now is people who do see this or read about this that they understand that with domestic violence that you just need to get away from that person. It doesn’t get better,” Timothy added. “And if something happens. you need to let people know about it. People will love you, they’ll take care of you, because you never know how far things will go.”
The suspect was identified as 22-year-old Deiondre Lewis. Deputies said Deiondre has been charged with murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and carrying a concealed firearm.

TO TA-LIYAH WILLIAMS FAMILY
I’m so very sorry to read about your beautiful Ta-Liyah. She looks like a wonderful and intelligent young woman.
I, too, was in an a relationship that started out great but…when I started feeling funny as he showed up unannounced at several places, even at work and my Daddy’s funeral stalking me my beautiful Mother Helen (God rest her soul) went with me to Remediation with him there and I got a Permanent Restraining Order against him. I know this doesnt help you now but maybe it will help someone else before it’s too late..
i’m sending gentle hugs and prayers for you and your family. May the peace of God comfort you. Sincerely, a kindred spirit of God.
I pray God give your family peace and the covering of the blood of Jesus over your lives.
