The man considered as a person of interest for the Marianna quadruple murders appeared in court today for sentencing on an unrelated charge.

Last month a Calhoun County jury convicted Wesley Williams for attacking a Blountstown man.

Twenty-two-year-old Wesley Williams was sentenced to a maximum of five years in prison today for felony battery.

On September 20 jurors found Williams guilty of felony battery in the beating of Delandon Reed.

Reed was supposedly beating his girlfriend when Williams stepped in and put Reed in a headlock.

Williams then went to his car, took something out, and began beating Reed with the object. Some witnesses say it was a gun.

Reed suffered a fracture to the skull.

The five-year prison sentence may not be the end of Williams' legal problems.

Marianna police say Williams is still a person of interest in the Marianna quad murders.

On March 17, 2005, authorities found 19-year-old Danielle Baker and her three young sons dead inside of her Cottondale Village Apartment.

Williams is the father of two of the dead boys. So far he's refused to talk to investigators about the case.

Williams will have to serve at least 85 percent of the five-year sentence he received today.

The judge also ordered him to pay $543.20 in restitution.
