Williamson County charges suspect in murder of Hutto officer

The Williamson County Grand Jury announced Thursday murder charges against Colby Williamson, 26, accused of running over and killing a Hutto police officer.

HPD Sgt. Christopher Kelley was on duty when he pulled over Williamson for a traffic violation.

Williamson then tried to gain control of Kelley’s vehicle, backing over Kelley during a struggle for the steering wheel, according to the affidavit.

The jury has indicted Williamson on first-degree murder charges, and he could face up to 99 years in prison.  

Sgt. Kelley was a veteran officer, who Williamson County calls one of the “best and brightest in his field.”
