Case of AWOL soldier murdered outside Bryant school now in jury’s hands

A Pierce County jury got the murder case against Irvin Dale Carter Jr. and Anthony Chester Lyons late Monday. They’re accused of first-degree murder in the death of Julius James Williams, 24.

Williams, who was absent without leave from his Army unit, was shot to death in September 2006, allegedly because he lost a gun he’d borrowed from Carter. Lyons allegedly served as a look-out during the crime.

Jurors spent all day Tuesday deliberating and are expected back for more Wednesday.
