Man Sentenced to Life in Former DJ Murder

LONG BEACH – A Montana man was sentenced today to life in prison without the possibility of parole for murdering a former Denver disc jockey whose body was discovered floating in the ocean off Santa Catalina Island in 2006.

Long Beach Superior Court Judge Mark Kim sentenced Harvey Morrow, 60, to serve an additional 25 years to life in prison for the first-degree murder of Steven Bailey Williams, said Deputy District Attorney John McKinney.

Morrow was convicted Nov. 9 of fatally shooting Williams, 59. The jury also found true the special circumstance of murder for financial gain.

McKinney said Williams, a disc jockey on the “Steven B. and The Hawk” morning show on the Denver radio station KBPI in the early 1980s, met Morrow in 2003. Morrow introduced himself as a retired investment banker and offered to set up investments for Williams to help manage a $2 million estate that Williams and his sister had inherited.

Shortly after they met, Morrow moved in with Williams in the Corona del Mar home owned by Williams’s father. Williams sold the home in January 2004 and turned over the $1.8 million to Morrow to invest. Morrow and Williams then moved to San Pedro and lived together in San Pedro until early 2006.

But Williams became suspicious that Morrow was stealing money from the accounts he set up and told friends he was going to confront Morrow. McKinney said Morrow spent $1.8 million in stolen money refurbishing his rundown yacht.

McKinney said cell phone and GPS records placed both men on Morrow’s yacht on May 4, 2006. He said Williams was shot once in the back of the head and his body was found floating six miles off Santa Catalina Island on May 18, 2006.

Morrow was later arrested working as a used car salesman in Great Falls, Mont.
