A Mercer County grand jury has indicted 42-year-old Wade Williams, of Trenton, with the September slaying of Tyrone King, the North Trenton man known as “Big Face.”

He was gunned downed on the 900 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard where cops found him bleeding from a gunshot wound to the chest on the floor of a deli. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Williams, a 300-pound disabled man who suffers from a spinal cord injury, is the alleged triggerman arrested in December by members of the county homicide task force and the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force in connection to the broad daylight Sept. 17 killing.

The state has surveillance footage, cellphone tower data and statements from confidential informants and an eyewitness to prove that Williams is the man who gunned down 51-year-old King, according to court documents.

At Williams’ detention hearing, attorney Robin Lord argued the state had a weak case against that amounted to “prosecution by rumor.”

Locked up at the Mercer County Correction Center, he faces counts of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and certain persons not to possess a firearm.
