Wilson knew exactly what he was doing the night he waited for everyone
in the house to fall asleep before sneaking out into the cold at about
4:30 a.m. on August 7, 2007. Christopher carried with him a duffle bag
inside that bag was a few garbage bags which held the remains of his
four year old son, Javeion Mayes, wrapped in a blanket. Christopher
walked just a few blocks from his
home and in a field that was full of Kudzu, an obnoxious weed, in that
field he threw the bag with the body of his son, which immediately
became swallowed up by the weeds, then he walked away leaving his child
25 feet from the street.
Javeion would be reported missing by his mother, Margarita Looper.
Christopher told police that his son had wandered off the morning he
went missing. Further questioning by police would lead to another
explanation where Christopher admitted that he had jerked his son hard
because he had peed on the floor after taking a bath and this caused
his son to hit his head on the sink. After an autopsy showed that
Javeion had drowned, Christopher was questioned yet again and changed
his story to say that he had jerked Javeion's arm, causing him to hit
his head on the sink and that toilet and then put him in the tub while
he left for about 15 minutes to go and dress Javeion's twin brother.
Christopher insisted that when he came back, his son was floating face
up in the tub and was unconscious. Christopher said he tried CPR but
In court, Christopher, who was 35 at the time stood before Circuit
Judge Edward W. Miller and plead guilty to the charge of homicide by
child abuse. Christopher had some things to say to the Judge:
" I want you to
understand something. I panicked, I still got to live with this. I just
have mercy. If I could take it back I would"
Isn't it funny how all of these people who abuse children and cause
their death ALWAYS want to
take it back and they want mercy for themselves, something they were NEVER willing to give to the child
Javeion's twin brother, Taveion, told police that he knew his
brother was dead and that he had seen what happened:
"Daddy hit him in the
It was only recently that Christopher had been told that he was the
father of the twin boys:
"Me and Christopher, we
had a paternity test going on. It's in the process right now.
comes back probably Tuesday. He deserves whatever comes to him. I don't
no sympathy, no nothing, I don't have nothing for him. Only thing I
have for him
In the courtroom that day was Javeion's mother, Margarita, who was
surrounded by family and friends. Christopher told the Judge that
Margarita was aware that the child was dead for hours before he was
"She convinced me not
to call the police. It was wrong for me not to call the authorities
should have, but she knew and was aware of everything that was going
on. I just took the
for it. Now my child is dead because I made a stupid mistake"
Margarita cried and
mouthed the words, "Oh my God", before bowing her head and wiping
tears, after hearing Christopher speak about her. Margarita was the one
who, in the end, called the police to report Javeion missing.
Before his sentencing, Christopher's Aunt spoke to the
court saying that her nephew's mother had died when he was only eight
years old and that he moved in with Grandmother until she had died:
"He'd crawl up under
his grandmother's house and sit by the chimney to keep warm
cry. He never got professional help and I believe he needs professional
is a caring person. He loves his family and he'll have a good support

Christopher Lamar Wilson was sentenced to 25 years plus two ten year
sentences for each guilty plea he had entered for the charges of
assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature which came
from a fight he had in prison in November of 2007 when inmates got on
him about the death of his son. Due to the nature of his crime,
Christopher will have to serve at least 85% of his sentence before he
will be considered for parole.
Though it seems like Margarita should be facing some kind of charges, I
am unable to find anything about her as far as charges go.
