Angela Simmons’ Ex-Fiancés Killer Sentenced To Life

By Brooks Welch

The man responsible for the murder of Angela Simmon’s ex-fiancé, Sutton Tennyson, has been sentenced to life in prison.

As Yahoo! reports, Tennyson was fatally shot outside of his garage in 2018. Williams turned himself in just days later, and surrendered to charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, and murder. Tennyson was 37.


“Justice served today!” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself, Tennyson, and their son together. “We got you ! We got him.”

According to TMZ, on April 15, Michael Williams was officially sentenced to life for murder, as well as an additional 15 years for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The outlet also reported that although the couple separated a year prior, Simmons testified during the trial, emotionally sharing how the couple’s now five-year-old child, SJ or Sutton Jr., would grow up without knowing his father.

Before trial, she has spoken openly about the traumatizing event. On an episode of her show, ‘Growing Up Hip Hop,’ Simmons said,“How do you explain to a 3-year-old that they’re never going to see them again?” she said.  “Other than my own way, which is like ‘He’s in heaven, he’s with God,’ all of the great things.”

Recalling the moment, she stated that her child “laid his head in my chest and told me he was sad.” “I never see him emotional,” she continued. “He’s a happy kid and that whole day he was just kind of mopey and sad.”

As reported by People, shortly after the murder, Simmons posted a series of touching tributes to the father of her son.

“Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” Simmons captioned a series of family shots.

“I’m hurting. I’m numb. Thank you for the out pouring of love everyone,” she continued, adding that she couldn’t “believe I’m even saying Rest in Peace Sutton.”
