SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) -- Results of a paternity test reveal professional wrestler Steve Williams -- aka "Dr. Death" -- is not the father of a child he has been ordered to support by a federal court.
DNA results of the paternity test released Monday state there's a "0 percent" probability that that Williams fathered a child in Oklahoma. The child is now living with its mother in California.
Williams, who has lived in Benton, La., since 1982, denied fathering the child. Nevertheless, a grand jury in Sacramento, Calif., charged him with a felony non-support.
He was facing up to two years in prison, a $250,000 fine and payment of support owed.
