Altercation at drug deal led to killing, prosecutors say

Victim said to be invited as backup

WOBURN — The two men accused of killing a 27-year-old US Army veteran opened fire after their scheme to rip off a drug dealer fell apart inside a Stoneham home, a prosecutor said Monday.

Jessie Williams, 24, of Medford, and Eugene Tate, 19, of Malden were arraigned Monday in Woburn District Court, where they both pleaded not guilty to murder, armed robbery, and three other charges.
