DA: Petty Dispute Led To Tragic Death

A second Woonsocket man has been sentenced to life in prison for the fatal shooting of a teenager.

Quinton St. Pierre was sentenced on Wednesday, earning the same fate as Craig Robinson, who was sentenced last week.

“Petty disputes and illegal firearms in the hands of individuals all too willing to use them remains a toxic mix, resulting in too many senseless deaths in Rhode Island. That is precisely the scenario here, and as a result, a young woman, with her entire life ahead of her, has been lost to her family and her community,” said Attorney General Neronha. “Nothing will bring Nyasia Williams-Thomas back to her family, but it is my hope that these significant sentences will bring them a measure of justice. I am grateful to the Woonsocket Police Department for their outstanding work and partnership during the investigation and prosecution of this case.”

The two were charged with the murder of NyAsia Williams Thomas, who was an unintended target of the shooting that took place in the city in 2019.
