Williams Trial

Larry Williams pauses while testifying Tuesday morning before answering a question about the birth of his youngest daughter. Larry Williams and his wife Carri Williams are accused of homicide by abuse and first degree-manslaughter in the death of their adopted daughter Hanna and first-degree assault of their adopted son in Skagit County Superior Court in Mount Vernon, Wash.

MOUNT VERNON — Larry Williams said this morning that he felt “responsible” and “ashamed” after five weeks of hearing people testify about allegations he and his wife abused their adopted children.

Larry and Carri Williams are charged with homicide by abuse and first-degree manslaughter in the death of Hana Williams, who collapsed in the family’s backyard in May 2011 and died of hypothermia hastened by malnutrition. They also are charged with first-degree assault of a child in connection with alleged abuse of their adopted son.
