    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

Murder In The Family: Travis John Wolfkill stabbed his grandmother, Shirley Wilson, to death; Sentenced to life in prison

The record includes evidence of the following: Sometime on the night of March 1, 2002, Shirley Wilson was stabbed to death in her home in Des Moines, which she shared with her grandson, Wolfkill. At trial, Chris McAdam testified Wolfkill had told him earlier on the day of Wilson’s death, “I hate my grandma. I wish she was dead.” In addition, Jeremy Chirch testified Wolfkill had told him earlier on the evening of Wilson’s death that he was going to
kill a family member. Wolfkill admitted to being in the house at about the time Wilson was killed. Wilson’s DNA was found on Wolfkill’s leg. The crime scene indicated Wilson had struggled with her killer; and a day after the murder,
Wolfkill’s body displayed marks consistent with having been in a fight. Finally, Wolfkill’s shirt, which had Wilson’s DNA on it, was found in Wolfkill’s bedroom. We reach the same conclusion here as we did on direct appeal.
