The gangland killer of Serena and Venus Williams’ beloved sister has been freed and is back on the street after being released from prison.

Former Southside Crips gang member Robert Maxfield shot registered nurse Yetunde Price in a drive-by shooting in September, 2003.

Yetunde was hit in the back of the head with an AK-47 and died instantly in Compton, California, leaving her family devastated. She was in the passenger seat while her boyfriend Rolland Wormley, who cops said had been the intended target, escaped unscathed

Serena and Venus opened  the Yetunde Price Resource Center in 2016 in Compton – to help people affected by violence and trauma

Her killer is now a free man after completing his 15-year sentence early due to good behaviour.

Maxfield pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in April 2006 after two previous trials that ended in hung juries.

Maxfield was released on parole from Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy, California, on March 8 after getting his sentence cut for good behaviour in jail.

At his sentencing at Compton Superior Court, Serena said, “I wasn’t going to speak  because it’s too hard for me to talk.”

But she said she wanted to let Maxfield “know that this was unfair to our family, and our family has always been positive and we always try to help people.”
