NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Prosecutors filed more charges against ex-NBA star Jayson Williams on Monday, saying he tampered with evidence and conspired to obstruct justice in the shooting of a limousine driver at his home.
Williams, already accused of manslaughter, was charged Monday with hindering apprehension, conspiracy to obstruct the administration of law, witness tampering and two counts of tampering with evidence, Hunterdon County authorities said.
Prosecutors have said Williams, 34, was handling a gun recklessly when 55-year-old Costas Christofi was shot in Williams' bedroom on Feb. 14.
A witness told Sports Illustrated magazine that Williams tried to put the victim's palm and fingerprints on the shotgun.
