"He said he was worried about (his) gun," Salgy testified. "He said that police had taken a gun that had been involved in a homicide and that he was the only one that had ever owned it."
Williams provided few details, Salgy said, explaining only that he was involved in a road rage incident in which he was outnumbered and feared there would be a fight.
"So, he leaned out the passenger window and shot," Salgy recounted. "Then they pulled over and he hurried home."
Salgy said he was heavily using drugs at the time, which dulled his moral compass. It wasn't until he was in the Utah County Jail following a July 13 arrest that he decided to "try and clear my conscience."
Williams will be arraigned on the charges March 26. He also faces unrelated drug charges.
