The Wheatfield Township authorities recently arrested a 19-year-old man after he allegedly shot his mother following a dog ownership dispute. After slaying his mother in her sleep, the Michigan teen drove his car to a remote area where he discarded his weapon.
Michigan Teen Was Told that the Dog Will Go to His Father House
Andrew Wilson, a 19-year-old Lansing area teenager, has been taken into custody and charged with first-degree premeditated murder. According to the authorities, the teenager brought home a Golden Retriever puppy he found wandering the streets and asked 51-year-old Lisa Marie Wilson if he could keep.
The woman was adamant about sending the puppy to his father’s house, a decision which enraged the teen. Based on the police report, the Michigan teen waited for her mother to fall asleep. He then left his bedroom, went to an area of the house where his mother kept several firearms under lock and key and broke into the weapon’s cabinet.
Andrew took a .22-caliber Magnum rifle and went to his mother’s bedroom where he shot her once in the back of the head. According to the authorities, Andrew needed some time to “cool off” and to “plan his next move.” Thus, he took the murder weapon, jumped into his mother’s car and drove aimlessly for a couple of hours until he found a secluded spot to dispose of the weapon.
Calmly, the Michigan teen drove home and at around 7 p.m., he called the authorities and told the emergency dispatcher that he shot his mother.
The woman was declared dead at the scene. As for the Michigan teen, he was taken into custody and charged with first-degree premeditated murder.
Andrew was booked into county jail without bail. If proven guilty, the teenager might be sentenced to death or life in prison.
