Illegal Alien Intentionally Runs Over and Kills Father of 3 on Bicycle in Johnston County

The death of a 42 year-old Kenly man was no accident according to police.

Kenly Police have filed murder charges against the driver of a car they say intentionally struck a bicyclist causing his death.

It happened Friday morning near the intersection of Highway 222 and Maple Street in the Kenly city limits.  Genaro Muniz-Padilla, 18, of Kenly was reportedly behind the wheel of a car that struck Jamica Williams on his bicycle.

Williams was rushed to Johnston Medical Center in Smithfield where he died as a result of his injuries.

Police Chief Josh Gibson said the victim and suspect had a prior altercation before the fatal encounter. Muniz-Padilla is facing a second-degree murder charge.

Jamica Williams attended North Johnston High School. He also had 3 sons according to his brother, Shelton Williams.  Jamica had been living in Greensboro the past 2 years. He returned to Kenly about a month ago to be closer to his family and was living on N. College Avenue. He was hired by a company in Selma just last week.
