A Killeen woman, De’Jauna Monte Williams, has been indicted by a Bell County Grand jury for the murder of 20-year-old Kaitlyn Silverio in March of 2020.

On March 29, officers were dispatched to the 3300 block of Hereford Lane in reference to a call about a shooting victim.

Officers found Silverio lying on a roadway, suffering from a gunshot wound. She was immediately airlifted to a Temple hospital in critical condition.

Silverio later died due to her injuries.

Two suspects, Williams and 19-year old Cedric Vernon Henderson Jr. were charged with the murder in an incident that detectives determined was a narcotics transaction.

Williams turned herself in to the police headquarters.

Henderson has since already been indicted, both now reside in Bell County Jail with a bond set at $1,000,000 each.
