Breaking news: Federal Way police arrest suspects in January murder

Federal Way police have arrested two people they believe are responsible for the January murder of Andre Aber Williams.

Police found Williams, 26, dead in the parking lot of the Club Palisades Apartments, located at 2211 S. Star Lake Road, on Jan. 11.

Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said detectives arrested a 22-year-old woman, Mykalla James, and her boyfriend, Kevion Alexander, 24, in the crime. According to arrest documents, police say James lured Williams to her apartment complex where he met with Alexander, who police say subsequently shot him in the head. According to the police report, after Williams died, he was dumped from his vehicle and his personal property was stolen. Schrock said the victim was a suspected drug dealer.

According to the police report, the suspects then drove Williams’ vehicle to Hoyt Road, where they set it on fire. Police found it the next day in the 32300 block of Hoyt Road Southwest.

According to the arrest reports, Alexander was booked for first-degree murder, and James was arrested for rendering criminal assistance. They have not yet been charged, however. Both are Federal Way residents.
