Suspect in Facebook Live murder arraignment continued

The man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend while the world watched on Facebook Live will have to wait another week to enter a plea. 

Johnathan Robinson, 37, is charge with second-degree murder in the April 11 death of 27-year-old Rannita Williams.

Although Robinson was scheduled to be arraigned in Caddo District Court this morning, the arraignment was postponed until May 29, when a preliminary examination is scheduled. 

Defense attorney Kurt Goins filed a motion on April 27 requesting a preliminary examination be held prior to the case being sent to the grand jury. 

Robinson also is charged with seven counts of attempted second-degree murder for the police officer he’s accused of shooting and injuring, as well as six he’s accused of shooting at.

Tonight on KTAL NBC 6 News at Five, hear from family members of both Rannita Williams and Johnathan Robinson.
