YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Dramatic courtroom footage shows two brothers lunging at the man convicted of murdering their mother.

It happened Thursday morning at a sentencing hearing for sixty-two-year-old Dale Williams who had previously pleaded guilty in the shooting death of Elizabeth Pledger-Stewart.

Just as the victim's daughter was about to make a statement, her brothers leaped at Williams in an apparent attempt to attack him.

Police eventually tased one of the brothers before putting both men in handcuffs.

Williams was taken a nearby hospital to be checked out. His sentencing hearing was postponed.

He could face 23 years to life in prison.
