This is just highly disturbing.

Two women found themselves arrested and charged with murder and robbery which is also connected to the death of an 84-year-old woman in Pechanga Resort Casino, This is quite significant since one of the women is the sister of Clippers star forward Kawhi Leonard.

Kimesha Monae Williams is currently being held without bail right along with 39-year-old Candace Townsel.


“On Aug. 31 at 8 a.m., deputies responded to Pechanga Resort Casino located at 45000 Pechanga Parkway in Temecula to investigate a report of a female adult who was found unconscious in a bathroom.

Upon their arrival, deputies discovered a female adult, later identified as 84-year-old Afaf Anis Assad of Long Beach, who appeared to be the victim of an assault.

Assad was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries which she later died from on Sept. 4.

According to Wayne Brown, Assad’s son-in-law, he and his wife dropped Assad and her husband off at the casino around 7:30 a.m. Aug. 31, and roughly half an hour later she was found badly beaten and unconscious in a bathroom.

“She didn’t even get a chance to play,” Brown said. “I mean she had some money in her wallet because she was ready to play that day, and I don’t know if they targeted her because she just walked through the door and they knew she had money in her wallet.”

Pechange would soon release a statement:

“We are absolutely saddened over this incident and are praying for the victim and her family. The suspects were quickly identified through surveillance footage and the information was immediately provided to law enforcement.”
