Accused killer of boy cries in court


Shawn Wilson is facing the death penalty for allegedly gunning down an 8-year-old boy as he slept in his bed, but the 21-year-old man did not have the appearance of a killer as he stood before a common pleas court judge Friday.

Wilson, shackled and wearing handcuffs, began crying moments before Judge R. Scott Krichbaum took the bench and did not stop throughout the entire hearing. Deputies had to hand the accused killer tissue as he struggled to compose himself.

Wilson is charged in connection with the murder of Bryce Linebaugh, killed in the early morning hours of Aug. 20 as he slept in a bunk bed at his Maplewood Court home in Rockford Village on the city’s East Side. A grand jury indicted Wilson on an aggravated murder charge with death penalty specifications.

Atty. Ronald Yarwood, representing Wilson, and assistant County Prosecutors Rebecca Doherty and Dawn Cantalamessa were in court for rulings on pretrial motions from the defense and prosecution.

I wonder if this is the first time he's ever had to face consequences for his actions.

No doubt hulk. When that gansta rap is brought to real life, there are real life consequences. Man up, Shawn, you are going to be some homie's b!tch on the inside real soon.

He's faking it, just wants to look sorry for what he did. His lawyer (paid for by us tax payers) probably told him to act that way. I'm not believing it wish we could put this pos under the jail. He gets no sympathy from me.

Oops, guess ya shouldn't have done that, huh Shawn? No doubt his tears are for himself and little to do with the lives he shattered. Hope he cries all the way to the execution chamber.

Shawn a little advice for you hommie, when they strap you into the electric chair, you want to keep on crying like a little child(just like the one you killed), the salt water will increase the conductance of the 40,000 volts that will go racing thru your useless POS brain.

Going to loose respect of all his Facebook friends.

Not going to be a good thing when word gets back to General Population either.

Not to mention when word hits the big house that your wanna be thug behind murdered a child in his sleep.

So sleep good young man do not think you will survive to long. Prison guards serving up animal justice in the pen for decades.

I bet he wasn't crying like a little baby when he was shooting up that house.
He was probably laughing his a$$ off.
You want to do the crime, time to face your consequences.
He should be taken out back and let the kids mother have her own justice with him.
He'll probably end up sitting in prison for 20+ years on the taxpayers dime before even being considered for execution.
"The Chair" is waiting for him and couldn't come soon enough.

Once people see the photos of this crime scene there's no possible way that the execution process will take its normal 20 plus years.
