MURPHYSBORO – A Carbondale man was indicted in Jackson County for his part in a shooting, two robberies and a home invasion.
According to the Jackson County State’s Attorney Office, 20-year-old Marquashion Wilson was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed robbery with a firearm, and home invasion.
He’ll potentially face 20 to 60 years in prison for each first-degree murder charge, plus six to 30 years in prison for each armed robbery charge with an additional minimum of 15 years on each, due to a gun being used during the crimes. The same charge will apply for home invasion.
The charges stem from a January 1 home invasion involving Wilson and 17-year-old Montavious Graham of Carbondale. The two forced their way into a Carbondale residence, leading to Graham being shot and killed after a struggle regarding a gun.
Wilson and Graham were allegedly also involved in a separate armed robbery the same day, where a cell phone, $30 in cash, and a pack of cigarettes were stolen from a victim by force.
He pleaded not guilty, and his bond is $1 million.
