The sister of NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard is charged with murdering an elderly woman in a California casino bathroom last Saturday.

Kimesha Monae Williams, 35, and her accomplice Candace Tai Townsel, 39, are charged with killing Afaf Anis Assad, 84.

The two women allegedly followed Assad into a bathroom at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif., where they struck her in the head with a blunt object and stole her purse containing $800–$1,200, according to The Press-Enterprise.

Williams was arrested on Sept. 3, a day before Assad died from closed head injuries.

Speaking through a window at the Williams family home in Moreno Valley, Williams' aunt Denise Woodard confirmed Williams is Leonard’s sister.

Woodard told the paper, "He didn't have anything to do with this."

Williams is being held without bail at Indio Correction Facility, according to The Press-Enterprise.

Woodard declined to speak for Leonard and said she didn't know whether Leonard had reached out to the family or to his sister.

A Riverside County sheriff's investigator filed a written request asking the judge to keep Williams locked up without bail due to her history of violence and family finances.

"Williams has family that are well off and could post her bail of $1,000,000," the investigator wrote. "I am requesting NO BAIL to assure Williams' appearance in court and to keep innocent victims safe."

After leading the Toronto Raptors to the team's first ever NBA championship Leonard signed a three-year, $103 million contract with the Los Angeles Clippers in July.

"Williams has a violent history and targeted a feeble elderly female and robbed her," the investigator wrote.

Jail records list Williams' height and weight as 6-foot-2 and 320 pounds, and Townsel as being 5-foot-4 and 195 pounds.

Williams is listed in court records as a biological female.

She has a long criminal history that includes petty theft, grand theft, misappropriating lost property, grand theft auto and attempted robbery, court records show.

A group of armed men and women pointed a gun at Popeyes workers and demanded an order of spicy fried chicken sandwiches. The perpetrators, which consisted of three men and two women, were reportedly hungry and angry when workers told them the restaurant was out of sandwiches.

KTRK in Houston reports that a baby was with the group.

Popeyes reportedly ordered all franchise restaurants to stop serving the coveted sandwiches after a series of violent incidents at inner city locations put customers and workers in danger.

Popeyes Chicken

The Popeyes chicken sandwich craze took off after the restaurant's rival, Chic-fil-A, challenged them to a chicken sandwich duel on social media.

Black Twitter took sides in the Popeyes/Chic-fil-A memes war and customers stampeded into Popeyes restaurants to sample the sandwiches for themselves.

But police say Monday night's holdup at a southeast Houston Popeyes drive up window was no laughing matter.

After workers informed the "mob" that there were no sandwiches, the group tried to enter the restaurant, but workers locked the doors. One of the men pulled a gun and threatened to open fire.

Police say the aforementioned baby was left alone in the car to fend for itself.

Police are looking for the group who fled the restaurant empty handed.

Last week, Popeyes released a statement saying the high demand for their product resulted in the sandwiches being sold out everywhere.

In the statement, Popeyes said, "We, along with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible."

But Black Twitter is not buying the story. They say chickens and bread are plentiful in grocery stores all over the country. And there have been no reported shortages of supplies at Chic-fil-A or other fast food restaurants.
