According to the Clark County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the Williams' residence after Donna Williams called 911 to report the death of her husband.
Investigators arrived to find the body of 55-year-old Mark Williams laying in a bed - covered with blood soaked sheets. Mr. Williams appeared to have been struck in the head several times with a blunt object. A wall near the bed was covered with blood spatter.

Donna stated that she woke up the morning of May 14, retrieved a hammer from the garage and repeatedly struck her husband in the head with it.
She then went to a convenience store, but returned to discover that her husband was still alive. That's when she allegedly grabbed the hammer and delivered one more blow to the head, killing him.
