He has been charged with second degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, armed burglary, shooting into an occupied dwelling and assault and battery.

Chasity's mother, Tishara Parker told Newschannel 3 that she is happy an arrest has been made, but she's still having a hard time coming to term's with her daughter's death.

"Right now I don’t know if it helps, I'm just hurt. I'll never see her again, my first born," Tishara said.

Other family members echoed those feelings.

"We are going to miss her, we are going to miss her, I swear to god. Why did he do that to her? She didn’t deserve that," said Latasha Parker, Chasity's aunt.

Williams remained in the Norfolk City Jail on Wednesday night. His first court date is Thursday, July 30.

Police say Parker's 75-year-old grandmother was taken to Sentara Norfolk General where she is expected to recover.
