Murder conviction of North Babylon man upheld

BABYLON -

The murder conviction of a North Babylon man has been upheld again.

An appellate court ruled Eric Williams acted with depraved indifference to life when he shot at a car in Deer Park back in 2001.

He was trying to collect a drug debt and the shooting caused a fatal crash.

Williams was convicted twice, once in 2013, and again two years later.

His first conviction was thrown out over accusations that testimony by his girlfriend was improperly handled.
