MILWAUKEE - A 21-year-old man has been arrested for a 2011 murder of a woman after an attempted armed robbery.

According to the prosecutor on the case, Milwaukee police officer Gregory Kuspa was called to N. Holton and W. Concordia on March 15, 2011 for the report of a woman with a gunshot wound. He found the woman, Diamaris Gonzalez, had been shot in her upper torso. She died on the scene.

Gonzalez's boyfriend had taken the bus to pick her up from work that day, and as they were walking down the street they saw two males standing on the corner of Concordia and Holton. He said that his back was turned but when he turned around, one of them was in front of Gonzalez with a "black object." The man shot Gonzalez.

On Thursday, Feb. 14, Joseph Lamont Williams, 21 of Milwaukee, was arrested for Felony Murder. He said that when they saw the couple, they decided to rob them. Williams said he was the look-out while the other man was supposed to rob Gonzalez and her boyfriend, but she resisted.

There has been no report of Williams' accomplice being arrested.
