Parolee Charged in 2 Rochester Homicides

A parolee with a felony record is now charged in two separate Rochester homicides that happened after he allegedly cut off his ankle monitor for a second time this year.

Christopher WIlliams is charged with murder in the July 16 shooting death of Marcus Bennett in a back yard on Sixth Street.

Williams is also charged in Monday night's shooting death of Kenneth Johnson on Roycroft Drive.

Both shootings happened during what police call "altercations."

Police say Williams repeatedly violated his parole from a 2015 arson conviction, and was allowed to stay out of jail after he cut off his ankle monitor in May.

He had allegedly cut off his ankle bracelet again, and was wanted on a warrant issued 11 days before the first killing.
