Ernest Williams Jr., 22, rejected a deal that called for him to serve a 25-year prison term in return for pleading guilty to the July 2012 slaying of Brian Schiavetti, 21, the newspaper reported.

Schiavetti was shot multiple times July 22, 2012, in what prosecutors say was a targeted drug-related killing, the newspaper reported.
