YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WFMJ) -- Dramatic courtroom footage shows two brothers in Ohio lunging at the man convicted of murdering their mother.

It happened earlier Thursday at a sentencing hearing for 62-year-old Dale Williams, who had previously pleaded guilty in the shooting death of Elizabeth Pledger-Stewart.


Just as the victim's daughter was about to make a statement, her brothers leaped at Williams in an apparent attempt to attack him.

Police eventually tased one of the brothers before putting both men in handcuffs.

Williams was taken a nearby hospital to be checked out.

His sentencing hearing was postponed. He could face 23 years to life in prison.
