Deputies found the 1970 Pontiac LeMans in heavy brush about 30 feet south off the road.  The car was resting against a telephone pole, and sustained severe damage. 

Jenna Higgins, 29, was found dead in the front passenger seat. 

Thursday afternoon, deputies said they went to a house on East Miami River Rd. to arrest Williams.  His mother arrived there a short time later, and gave permission to search the house.   Williams was found hiding in the attic. 

Williams is now being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center. He is charged with two counts of Aggravated Vehicular Homicide, and one count of Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
