Man convicted in Raleigh pizza shop owner's death

Posted May 21, 2013

— A Wake County jury on Tuesday found a Raleigh man guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a pizza parlor owner just over two years ago.

William Damieon Edwards was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the May 19, 2011, shooting death of Jay Waheed Ammeri at the NY Style Pizza restaurant on Louisburg Road.

Prosecutors presented evidence in the weeklong trial that Edwards' wife, who worked at a nail salon in the same shopping center, and Ammeri had an affair approximately 10 months before the shooting.

    People commenting that he shot a 14 year old girl and got off obviously he was defending himself from someone shooting at him in the same car she was in. It's no way he could get off if committed this type of assault. There are always two sides of a story.

    I think the without the possibility of parole is a little harsh- mrlee34

    Will the victim get a “parole” from the cemetery?

    I think the without the possibility of parole is a little harsh. He obviously did this out of rage of a cheating wife...this was a crime of passion.

    Zile1porkery- I wouldn't go rushing to say two good men because well obviously one was capable of murder. Doesn't seem like a good man to me.

    "Nah I hope she realizes she has lost two good men behind foolishness."

    I don't know how "good" they were if one was an adulterer and the other is now a convicted murderer.
