Ex-Con Sentenced to 160 Years for Stabbing Teen to Death During Home Invasion and Then Taunting Her Mother With Text Messages

It is horrific enough for a mother to have to live with the reality that her child has been murdered. For Brenda O’Laughlin, though, her 14-year-old daughter’s killer took things to an even sicker level, as he not only murdered an innocent child, but he also taunted her mother with disturbing text messages afterwards.

The prosecution argued that Wilson, a 38-year-old parolee with a lengthy criminal history, used a landscaping rock wrapped in a red knit cap to smash a window and break into the O’Laughlin’s $500,000 house.

They claim Kelli surprised Wilson in the family room during the break-in when she got home from school about 3.40pm on October 27, 2011.

Wilson grabbed an eight inch carving knife from a butcher’s block and stabbed Kelli in the neck, back and chest. One of the wounds pierced her aorta.

He then dragged her lifeless body from the family room into the kitchen, before ransacking the home.

Wilson fled with a bowl of coins, an iPod Touch and Kelli’s phone. Prosecutors said he caught a cab home and used the coins to pay for the fare.

… Kelli died in a hospital that night, but at about 11.30am the next day Brenda started receiving disturbing text messages from her daughter’s stolen smart phone.

One of the texts read: ‘She wanted to tell you something before I killed her.’

How sick and depraved does a person have to be to do something like this? It’s good news that he was found guilty, but life in prison is too good for this animal. He should be killed, just as brutally as Kelli was.
