The man who killed the sister of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams was released from prison after spending 12 years there.
Yetunde Price is the half-sister of the Williams sisters, who had been killed in a drive-by in 2003 in Compton, California-USA. She was only 31 years old. She was shot in the head while she was the passenger of a vehicle driven by her boyfriend, identified as the initial target of the attack. The young woman died instantly.
This attack would have been linked to a conflict between rival gangs.
The shooter, Robert Maxfield was sentenced to 15 years in prison for willful homicide in 2006. Because of his good behavior, he was released three years earlier, according to the US website TMZ Sports.
The Williams sisters were close to their older sister. The latter served as a part-time personal assistant at the beginning of their careers.
Venus and Serena Williams inaugurated the Yetunde Price Resource Center in Compton in 2016 in honor of their half-sister, to help victims of violence.
