BOYNTON BEACH A woman was shot to death in front of her mother Saturday night, apparently while on the phone with 911 dispatchers.

Mittie Marie Allen, 49, was on the phone in the bedroom at her mother's home on 11th Avenue, according to Boynton Beach police. Dispatchers said they heard a man in the background ask Allen whether she had called police at 6:46 p.m. The man, who police say was her boyfriend, Anthony H. Williams, then shot her at least once in the head.


Allen rolled forward, grabbing onto the shirt of her mother, Odessa Cox, pleading for help. Cox ran into the street, where a witness saw her and called 911 at 6:50 p.m. Six minutes later, the SWAT team arrived at the house.

SWAT members entered the house at 8 p.m., but Williams was not inside. Police believe the 52-year-old lives in West Palm Beach and were looking for him Saturday night.

Williams has been to prison five times since 1977, according to Department of Corrections records, for crimes including cocaine possession, robbery, aggravated battery and grand theft. He was released most recently in August 2005.

Police ask anyone who knows Williams or where he may be to call Boynton Beach police at 561 (742-6100) or Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS (8477).


Sad, she should have been packing.

6:46 p.m.... SWAT members entered the house at 8 p.m.

And that was the SWAT team! It took them six minutes to get there, then another HOUR for them to actually enter the house.

I'd say the above quote from the article says it all...

1 - She shouldn't have been dating the scumbag...

2 - She should have been packing...

3 - He should have never been released from prision in the first place...

Criminals like this guy should be thrown in prison for life with no chance of being released.

It seems like if you have to be sent to prison more than twice, you should never be allowed to leave.:confused:

Sad story, its a damn shame she was unarmed and helpless.

Please keep your comments on topic and high road. The report tells us so little, there is really little to discuss that is relevant.

Yeah, ha ha. Because when people get murdered, it is so damn funny. Let's all laugh at how they aren't as smart as we are. :scrutiny:
