Yolanda Holmes doted on her son, Qaw’mane Wilson, an only child she lavished with fancy clothes, jewelry, and a Mustang.
At 23, the aspiring rapper who called himself “Young QC” wanted more, and hired a hitman to kill his mother, Cook County Judge Stanley Sacks said Friday, as he sentenced Wilson to 99 years in prison.
The gunman, Eugene Spencer, was sentenced to 100 years.
“The word is ‘matricide,’ meaning murder of one’s own mother,” Sacks said as he stared down from the bench at Wilson and Spencer.
“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 away from her.”
