A rapper in Chicago who hired the services of a hitman to kill his mother to have access to her life insurance bank account has been sentenced to 99-years in prison.
Qawmane Wilson aka “Young QC” was found guilty of murder on Friday and sentenced to spend the remainder of his life behind bars. Eugene Spencer, the hitman, was sent to 100 years behind bars.
The Judge who jailed the men, Stanley Sacks, said “The word is matricide” which means the murder of one’s mother is a big offense. Back in 2012, Wilson, the only child of his mum employed a gunman, Eugene Spencer to murder Wilson’s mum to have access to her account. Wilson’s mum, Yolanda Holmes was killed by the gunman after Wilson gave an order to “make sure the b*tch is dead”
Information also reveals that the gunman was in the company of Wilson’s girlfriend when he drove to Mrs. Yolanda’s home to kill her in her sleep. Several months after her death, Wilson drained his mother’s account using it to his extravagant lifestyle.
In another instance, he was captured in a YouTube video where he tossed wads of cash to a crowd of people he said were his fans. Stanley Sacks disclosed during the sentencing that Holmes was a devoted mum who gave her all he ever needed
He further stated;
“Whatever he wanted, his mother gave to him. A car, a job. One could say he was spoiled. “She gave Qawmane life, and it was his choice to take it away from her,” Judge Sacks said
He was asked if he had anything to say before the sentencing, the rapper said, nobody ever loved his mum as he did, she was all I had, that’s it
