Mahoning grand jury indicts Willie Wilks in Tuesday homicide


YOUNGSTOWN — Willie G. Wilks has managed to allegedly commit a brazen daytime murder, get arrested and then be indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury all in a span of time less than 48 hours.

The charges levied against him could cost him his life.

Wilks was indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury this afternoon on charges of aggravated murder with death-penalty specifications, murder, attempted aggravated murder, felonious assault, improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation and illegal possession of a weapon.

Wilks, 41, of Elm Street, is charged with the Tuesday afternoon shooting of 20-year-old Ororo Wilkins and the shooting of Alexander Morales Jr. both at a home in the 700 block of Park Avenue on the city’s North Side. Morales is expected to recover from his injuries.
