Dope-smoking ex-boyfriend strangled estranged lover and her seven-month-old baby – then announced it on Facebook

Something tells me when Mark Zuckerberg started facebook, he had no clue it would one day prove a valuable tool for the justice system. Not only are law enforcement officers using it to look for missing persons and track down criminals, some of these criminals have themselves made the whole process a lot easier by providing confessions and proof of their evil deeds.

“Friends of Williams also told police he had  seemed fine after May 31 and was  ‘joking, laughing and smiling’ as he played  pool on a computer.” I bet that is one thing he wont be doing for much longer when he is thrown into jail with a lifetime of fresh pals who hate baby killers.

A man who strangled his ex-partner and her  seven-month-old son before using text messages and Facebook to announce what he  had done has been jailed for life with a minimum of 29 years.

Wesley Williams used a ligature to carry out  the ‘chilling, casual and calculated’ killings of Yvonne and Harrison Walsh, who  were found dead in their beds in June.

He then went on to Facebook, telling one  social media user he was in good spirits, and wrote: ‘Sometimes we just  have to  do things we shouldn’t.’

Sentencing Williams to life at  Birmingham Crown Court today, Mr Justice  MacDuff  described the 29-year-old cannabis user as being ‘clearly evil and  dangerous beyond measure’.

Williams throttled Ms Walsh and her baby  while another woman he had broken up with, Rebecca Shuttleworth, was standing  trial at the same court for the murder of her own two-year-old  son.

Details of his previous relationship with  Shuttleworth, who was jailed for life in June for killing Keanu Williams, could  not be reported by the media until today, when a court order was lifted by the  judge.

Williams, a violent offender with a string of  previous convictions, is thought to have killed Ms Walsh out of anger after she  ended their relationship as he planned to propose to her.

Investigations into the double murder  established that Williams made heartless comments on Facebook almost immediately  after the murders.

In a post to his own Facebook account timed  at 8.54pm on Friday May 31, Williams wrote: ‘Sometimes we just  have to do  things we shouldn’t.’

Ms Walsh, a social care graduate, is known to  have been alive at 8.10pm on the same night and the prosecution submitted that  she was dead by  8.54pm.

Inquiries by police also proved that Williams  told another social media user he was in good spirits, and had then posted: ‘I  am sorry it had to come to this,’ on  Ms Walsh’s Facebook page.

Before his arrest at a flat in Henderson  Court, Oldbury, West Midlands, on  June 2, Williams also sent a text message to  police, informing officers  that he had killed his girlfriend, who was upstairs  in a bedroom.

In the hours before he was apprehended, the  killer was also captured on  CCTV doing ‘high-fives’ with a friend in a  fast-food outlet.

Friends of Williams also told police he had  seemed fine after May 31 and was  ‘joking, laughing and smiling’ as he played  pool on a computer.

Last week, Williams admitted to killing his  former partner and the baby by ‘strangling  them in their beds’ just two days after  the couple had broken up in  Billesley,  Birmingham, West Midlands, in June this year.

University graduate Yvonne, 25, and Williams  had been in a relationship for several months – but it ended abruptly on May 31.

Two days later the mother and baby were found  dead in their beds after West Midlands Police forced their way into the  property.

Post-mortem examinations revealed the mother  and son had died as a result of pressure being applied to their  necks.

Williams admitted two counts of murder during  an emotional hearing at Birmingham Crown Court last week.

Addressing Williams last week, Judge William  Davis QC said: ‘Self-evidently, because of your pleas, the sentencing judge will  be obliged to sentence you to prison for life and the minimum period will be a  very substantial term.’

Both the victims died as a result of pressure  to the neck, according to a post mortem examination after they were found at  their home in Chells Grove on June 2.

He was arrested the same day, shortly after  the discovery of their remains by police.

Judge Davis QC ordered Williams to be  remanded in custody until his sentencing hearing.

Two hours before Williams appeared in court  Yvonne’s sister Tracey Walsh took to Facebook to plead with him to admit the  killings.

She wrote: ‘You’d think after six months this  would get easier but still feels like the first day…plead guilty today you  monster and let us get justice for our sister and nephew.’

Yvonne worked at a care home for vulnerable  adults in Moseley, Birmingham, less than  three miles from her home.

She had been seeing Williams for around two  months after she split from Harrison’s biological father.
