Second Guilty Plea in Yellowhouse Canyon Murder

This morning a Lubbock man pleaded guilty to murder of Bernard Wilson. Leslie Evans pleaded guilty to murder and received a 25-year sentence.

On December 23rd, 2008, 35-year-old Keyairra Brown was sentenced to 29-years in prison after pleading guilty to murder in a Lubbock court.

Brown  is one of six suspects charged with the murder of 17-year-old Bernard Wilson whose body was found three years ago in east Lubbock County.

According to investigators, Wilson was stabbed and beaten and then moved to Yellow House Canyon.

DNA testing confirmed his identity earlier this year.

Cases for the other four suspects are still pending.

Thamar Snyder, Leslie Evans' mother Wanda Wilson, Carnell Littlejohn, and Joe Ragan have all been charged in the Wilson case. 

Prosecutors say each suspect will be dealt with according to their respective responsibilities in the murder.
