Family of Beaumont man continues wait for trial two years after shooting death

The family of Rubin Williams is waiting for justice to be served after a man suspected of killing Williams has not stood trial

BEAUMONT - The family of Rubin Williams is still waiting for justice to be served almost two years after he was shot outside of a Beaumont nightclub.

41-year-old Rubin Williams was shot outside the Ok Rodeo Disco Club in the 6000 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway and died later at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital, according to the Beaumont Police Department.

According to 12News file stories, Darrell Paul Williams, 36, was indicted in connection with the murder.

Williams may not face a trial in the case until his federal prison sentence on unrelated charges is over.

Latonyia Williams, Rubin Williams’ niece is upset that her uncle’s case has not gone to trial.

"We haven't got any closure to my uncle's murder," Williams said.

Williams was with her uncle the night before he was killed.

“It's even harder knowing that the person who actually took his life is not even being held responsible for it,” Williams said.

Darrell Paul Williams was arrested by the Beaumont Police Department in February 2017 due to his role in organized bank robberies across Texas.

He is currently serving a seven to nine-year federal prison sentence. At the time of Williams’ arrest, the murder warrant was still active.
