Carlos Williams made first appearance in Adams County Circuit Court

A Quincy man, arrested Tuesday in connection with the May death of a Quincy man, whose body was found by the side of a road, will remain in jail on $5 million bond. 

Carlos Williams made his first appearance Thursday afternoon in Adams County Circuit Court. Records show his bond will remain at 5 million dollars, and that he'll have a public defender represent him. Williams is charged with three counts of 1st Degree Murder in the May death of Orlando Smith. Charging documents say that Williams strangled Smith sometime between May 27th and May 30th. Smith's body was found on the 30th on the side of the road in the 200 block of Koch’s Lane in Quincy. Authorities haven't said what a possible motive was for the killing, but do say that law enforcement was able to make an arrest after numerous interviews, as well as physical evidence found by the Illinois State Police's Crime Lab.

Williams is due in court again on Monday.
