TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Denise Williams arrest is a breakthrough in a 17-year cold case. 

Her husband, Mike Williams, was missing for 17 years before his body was found last year.

Williams was walked out of her job at Doak Campbell Stadium in handcuffs by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

She's charged with conspiracy to commit murder, first degree murder, and accessory after the fact.

According to court records, Denise and her estranged husband, Brian Winchester, conspired between March 1 and December 16 of 2000, to kill Mike Williams, who Denise was married to at the time.

The indictment shows on December 16 of 2000, he was shot in Jackson County.

Then between August 1, 2014 and December 19 of last year, Denise was charged with helping Brian Winchester avoid arrest.

He is serving time for kidnapping and pulling a gun on Denise in August of 2016.

Court records show Brian has not been indicted on new charges.

WTXL spoke earlier with Mike Williams' former boss of 15 years. He reflects on Williams as an employee and the impact it had on him when he went missing.
