Clarksburg Man Receives Maximum Sentence for 2021 Boyds Murder

A Montgomery County Circuit Judge sentenced 21-year-old Rodjaun Neal-Williams, from Clarksburg, to 30 years in prison for murdering a man in 2021.

Neal-Williams was convicted by a jury March 7 on charges of Voluntary Manslaughter and Use of Firearm in Commission of a Crime of Violence for the death of 23-year-old Javon Gordon of Boyds. Gordon played football and graduated from Clarksburg in 2016.

Victim: 23-year-old Javon Gordon of Boyds.

This case traces back to April 13, 2021, on the 12900 block of Ethel Rose Way in Boyds. According to court documents, Neal-Williams, who was 19 at the time, shot the victim after an altercation while seated in the passenger seat of a car.

“This is an example of a ghost gun fired in broad daylight in a neighborhood where families were out enjoying a beautiful spring day. I thank Assistant State’s Attorneys Gabriel Carrera and John Lalos for their work in this matter, as this type of brazen violence is not acceptable in our community. This defendant will face up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced,” said State’s Attorney John McCarthy.
