Carbondale man indicted for murder in fatal home invasion

Marquashion Wilson

JACKSON CO. (WSIL) -- A grand jury has indicted a Carbondale man for his role in two robberies, a home invasion and shooting in Jackson County.

Marquashion D. "Vito" Wilson, 20, of Carbondale, is charged with home invasion, two counts of first-degree murder, and two counts of armed robbery with a firearm.

Prosecutors say, on January 1, Wilson along with Montavious "Bobo" Graham committed a home invasion, forcing their way into a rural Jackson County residence. During the crime, there was a struggle over a gun, and Graham, 17, of Carbondale, was shot and killed.

The indictment alleges Wilson and Graham were also involved in an armed robbery earlier that day, taking a cell phone, $30 in cash, and a pack of cigarettes from a victim by force.

Wilson is also charged with taking a cell phone from another victim.

According to the Jackson County State's Attorney's Office, each armed robbery charge carries a potential sentence of 6 to 30 years in prison. Because a gun was used, a minimum of 15 years must be added to each sentence.

Home invasion is a Class X offense and carries the same penalty as armed robbery. First-degree murder carries a potential sentence of 20 to 60 years in prison.

Wilson has pleaded not guilty. His bond is set at $1 million.

A case management hearing is set for February 24 in Jackson County Court.
