A Chicago rapper has been sentenced to 99 years in prison after he hired a hit man to murder his mum to give him access to her bank accounts and life insurance.
Qaw’mane Wilson AKA “Young QC” a rising rapper was found guilty of the murder-for-hire of his mum last year, he was sentenced on Friday to 99 years in prison (the rest of his life) and the gunman, Eugene Spencer, was sentenced to 100 years.
Stanley Sacks of Cook County said;
“The word is ‘matricide,’ meaning murder of one’s own mother, is a big offense.
Wilson who was the only child of his mother, Yolanda Holmes , in 2012 hired a hitman, Eugene Spencer, to kill her. She was shot and stabbed by the hitman on Wilson’s order “make sure the b*tch is dead.”
The court also heard that the hitman, Eugene Spencer went with Wilson’s girlfriend to kill Yolanda in her home. She was shot in her sleep while her boyfriend was knocked unconscious before Spencer returned to stab her.
Months after his mother’s death, Wilson collected the money in his mother’s bank accounts and used it to fund his extravagant lifestyle.
On another occasion, he withdrew thousands of dollars from a bank and tossed wads of cash to a crowd of people he said were his fans. He captured the the moments in a YouTube video that was played for the jury.
Cook County Judge Stanley Sacks said during the sentencing that Holmes was a devoted mother who gave her son anything he wanted.
“Whatever he wanted, his mother gave to him. A car. A job. One could say he was spoiled.“She gave Qaw’mane life, and it was his choice to take it way from her,” Judge Sacks told the court yesterday.
Wilson before his sentence was read said,
“I just want to say, nobody loved my mother more than me,” he said. “She was all I had. That’s it.”
