Woman arrested for stabbing her husband to death is pictured grinning in her mugshot (Photo)

An Oklahoma woman has been pictured grinning in her mugshot just after she was arrested for the murder of her husband. 

48-year-old Shanda Johnson-Williams was arrested on Tuesday, November 18 after her husband, Jamie Williams, 48, was found stabbed to death inside their home in Ft. Towson two days earlier. 

According to a statement released by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, a 911 call was made Sunday to say that Williams had been found unresponsive at his home. By the time paramedics arrived at the premises, Williams was dead, with a medical examiner subsequently ruling that the cause of death was a single stab wound.  

In her mugshot which was published online by authorities, Johnson-Williams was pictured grinning.

Reacting to the mugshot, a local law enforcement officer told Newsweek that the mugshot could be damaging for Johnson-Williams in the future.  

‘The smiling photo won’t help her when showed at jury time,’ Sheriff Terry Park stated. 

Johnson-Williams, who is currently being detained at Choctaw County Jail, is now facing a first-degree murder charge, which could see her receive a death penalty.
