Parents tend to go above and beyond for their children but sometimes they don’t know the kind of spawn they are raising… in other words, spawned a demon seed.
An aspiring Chicago rapper named Young QC, whose real name is Qaw’mane Wilson was sentenced to 99 years in prison after he and a hitman he hired to kill his mother was found guilty of murder by Judge Stanley Sacks, in Cooks County, on Friday.
Sacks noted what had become obvious during the case that Wilson, who was 23 at the time Holmes was shot dead in her North Side apartment, was doted on by his mother when he ordered the hit.
“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,” the judge said during the 30-year-old’s sentencing.
Sacks also sentenced the hitman, Eugene Spencer, a similar punishment, 100 years in prison for the slaying of Wilson’s mother, Yolanda Holmes, in 2012.
Prosecutors said Spencer and Wilson’s girlfriend went to Holmes’ apartment in Uptown on September 12, 2012, to carry out the murder so that the rapper could empty her bank accounts and claim money from her life insurance policy.
‘The word is ‘matricide’, meaning murder of one’s own mother,’ the judge said as he stared down from the bench at Wilson and Spencer, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
‘I just want to say, nobody loved my mother more than me,’ he said. ‘She was all I had. That’s it.’
Relatives said that Holmes’ murder and the charges against her son nearly a year later had ‘torn a hole’ in the close-knit family.
Sondra Jackson, Holmes’ aunt, attended each day of the week-long trial last year with a group of family members and had always sat on the side of the courtroom behind prosecutors, reports the Sun-Times.
‘After all this, we still don’t understand why he did it,’ Jackson said at the time. ‘We are just happy to have this over’.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay to love our kids unconditionally especially when we can give them better than what we never had, but at what point do we ask ourselves what happens when we are no longer around, or we are unable to give them the things they always ask? If we don’t teach them how to earn an honest living, how will they know how to survive in this world?
