Text mesage shooter convicted of attempted murder after shooting wife and her daughter

Could face life

District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Jakari Wilson was convicted by jury of two counts of premeditated attempted murder. The jury also found true the allegation of intentional discharge of a firearm causing great bodily injury.

Wilson had two 1994 convictions of aggravated assault in the state of Georgia that are strike offenses.

In October 2010, Wilson hosted a barbeque at his residence where he lived with his wife and her 16 year-old daughter. During the barbeque, Wilson and his wife got into an argument over a text message he exchanged with another woman. Wilson grabbed his wife, threw her to the ground, aimed a gun at her head and fired.

The victim was struck in her right upper arm, sustaining a through and through gunshot wound. Her daughter screamed at Wilson to stop. Wilson then turned and shot the daughter in the face, striking her right cheek bone.

Both victims were transported to the hospital and treated for their injuries. A bullet fragment still remains in the daughter’s right cheekbone.

Wilson faces a sentence of 110 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for October 7, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. in Department 20 before the Honorable Michael Sweet.
