Kawhi Leonard led the Toronto Raptors to the NBA title this past season, winning NBA Finals MVP for the second time in his career.

One of the defendants accused of killing an elderly woman in California has been identified as the sister of Los Angeles Clippers small forward Kawhi Leonard.

The incident occured at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California.

Assad and her 94-year-old husband were entering the Pechanga Resort Casino on August 31, deputies with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said according to the Enterprise. Kimesha Monae Williams, 35, faces charges including first-degree murder, and robbery in the death of Afaf Anis Assad, 84.

A Riverside County sheriff's investigator asked a judge to hold Williams without bail, saying she might flee and that she "has family that are well-off and could post her bail", an apparent reference to Leonard, who recently signed a three-year, US$103 million with the Los Angeles Clippers.

On Aug. 31, Assad was found unconscious in a restroom at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif., and died September 4 of "injuries sustained in the incident", the Riverside County Sheriff's office said.
