Demony Wilson is just 17. He's also charged with murder in the slaying of

Nigerian-born

University of Missouri-Kansas City student Oladimeji

Oladipo.

According to court records, Wilson told detectives that he shot Oladipo once while trying to rob him of his laptop computer in the parking lot of a McDonald's at 6406 Troost last July. Wilson was charged today with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery

and two counts of armed criminal action.



In December, Jackson County prosecutors charged Markus

Whitelaw, also known as

"Twin," with second-degree murder after he admitted to providing the gun

used in the robbery turned killing.

Oladipo,

who worked as a corrections

officer, was using his laptop in the restaurant's parking lot. Wilson

and another young

man allegedly tried to rob him of the computer, and Oladipo resisted.

Whitelaw was arrested December 29.

According to the probable-cause statement, Whitelaw told police that

Wilson and another man approached him at a gas station, telling him that

they wanted to steal a

laptop

from someone in the nearby McDonald's parking lot.

Whitelaw told

police

that he left the gas station and came back with a snub-nosed revolver

that he gave to Wilson. After Wilson and the other man left,

Whitelaw told police that he heard a gunshot. Wilson and the other teen

returned and

gave

Whitelaw a laptop. "He didn't want

to give it up, and shit got crazy," one of the men allegedly said.

Wilson allegedly tried to give

Whitelaw the revolver, but he didn't want it. Can't blame him.

Oladipo had only two

semesters left before he would have graduated from UMKC with a degree

in economics. It really isn't fair.
