According to the Cobleskill Police Department, it was just after 12PM on Tuesday afternoon when they responded to a call that a vehicle had rammed into the motel.  When they got there, Willams was already deceased and it was determined that he was sitting on a bench outside of the motel with his two dogs when the violent ambush took place.

The crash caused George's vehicle to bust through the walls of the motel while coming to rest inside the room that Williams had been staying.  According to the report, many others living inside the motel had to leave their place of residence after the building was deemed unsafe.

Cobleskill police say one of the two dogs sitting with Williams was pronounced dead when they arrived and the other dog had to be put down later in the day.

Police say that George Jr., a level-3 sex offender on parole, tried to flee the scene but was apprehended a short time later.  He's been charged with first-degree manslaughter and is being held without bail according to the information provided.
