Daytona Woman Convicted of Murder in Thirteen Minutes

DAYTONA BEACH – It took only thirteen minutes for a Volusia County Jury to convict a Daytona Beach woman of Second Degree Murder today, September 10, 2015. Brenda A. Reynolds, 54, faces a life sentence on the second-degree murder conviction at a sentencing date to be set.


            On July 11, 2014, Brenda Reynolds murdered Emma Sue Williams by stabbing her in the upper chest with a silver knife. The stabbing apparently stemmed from a dispute over some of the defendant’s possessions. Witnesses testified that Reynolds, after stabbing Williams, yelled from her front porch that she had committed a murder.


            Director of Operations North, Assistant State Attorney Jason Lewis, prosecuted the case with Assistant State Attorney Nathaniel Sebastian. Seventh Circuit Judge Leah Case presided over the case and will pronounce sentence at a hearing date to be set.
