S03E08 - Ann Browning (The Murder of Bill Williamson)


In the eighth episode of British Murders Season 3, I tell the tragic story of Bill Williamson and his killer Ann Browning.⁣

Bill was 82 when he was murdered by 53-year-old Ann.⁣

He was convinced by her to sell his home and to move in with her.⁣

On the same day the house sale was completed, Bill moved in with Ann and was brutally killed by her.⁣

Ann was sentenced to life imprisonment in August 2011 with a minimum term of 25 years.⁣
