Willie Taylor Murder
Sep 8, 2012 Madison, WI

15 months after leaving prison with a shortened sentence Dominique Hale headed back for 30 years. Hale forced his way into an apartment at Greenway Cross and Coho Street where he killed Willie Taylor and then hurt his former girlfriend, Porsha Davis. Taylor grabbed a kitchen knife to defend himself but ended up with a stab wound to his heart and collapsed on the sidewalk outside the apartment.

Hale had was released six months early in 2011 for his role in the torture of a man in 2007 after convincing a judge he was not a danger to society. Three months later he was arrested for allegedly firing gunshots in a Downtown bar. Charges related to the gunshots were dropped, and three months after he was released from jail he would kill Taylor.
