  • Larry Wilson told police that he killed his son's step-father for allegedly abusing his son.

An accusation of sexual abuse may have led to yesterday's homicide in Independence. Larry Keith Wilson told Independence police that his son had told him that he had been sexually abused in the past by his step-father, James Matthias. So Wilson made a decision on Saturday to kill Matthias when he came to pick up Wilson's son.

The son told police that Wilson, his biological father, twice sent him inside his house to get a Christmas present when Matthias came to pick him up. When the son didn't find the gift a second time, he told police that he walked out of the house in time to see Wilson shoot Matthias in the head with a .357 handgun. Wilson then handed him a cell phone and told him to call 911.



Wilson's son flagged down a police officer in the 700 block of North Forest in Independence. Matthias was dead at the scene in a car in the driveway of Wilson's home.

Police arrested Wilson up the street from his house. A silver revolver was in the front passenger seat of Wilson's car. Wilson later told police that he left the scene because he didn't want to fight with his son.

Wilson, 42, is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
