LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A suspect believes a 15-year old would be alive today if he and the teen's mother hadn't tried to rob a man the day before. It's part of newly released evidence in the case against Kendra Wilson.
When the judge asked if she could afford her own attorney, Wilson replied, No, ma'am."
Newly released evidence shows a growing connection that her son's murder was directly linked to a botched robbery attempt the day before.
Wilson is charged with trying to rob and kill James Mallory behind Hotel Louisville in April. The next day, Wilson's son, 15-year-old Gregory Holt, was found fatally shot in their home. Mallory and two others have been charged with Holt's murder.
In a police interview, Wilson's boyfriend Brandon Bartee says he and another man planned to rob Mallory of money so Wilson could visit her sick son in Detroit. Wilson allegedly lured Mallory to an area behind Hotel Louisville, but he escaped after a gun was pulled.
Bartee and William O'Bannon have already pleaded guilty in the case in exchange for testifying against Wilson. Bartee says Wilson told him and O'Bannon to lie to police about their involvement.
Bartee was initially not forthcoming, but opened up during the two-hour interview.
LMPD Det. Emily McKinley said, "A 15-year-old was killed and I need to know why? We all need to know why? And I know something happened. We've received a lot of information."
Bartee says some of Wilson's family members are upset with her. "He felt like it was her fault that little Greg is gone."
Wilson will be back in court on July 13th. The prosecutor says others could be charged in the case. WDRB's Bennett HaeberleI spoke with some of Wilson's family's members outside court Thursday, but they declined to be interviewed on camera.
