Man convicted in foster son's 2007 murder

Man convicted in foster son's 2007 murder

After less than an hour and a half of deliberation Wednesday, a jury convicted Michael Lee Wilson of smothering to death his 2-year-old foster son.

The jury watched a video-taped confession Tuesday where Wilson, 32, admitted to killing 2-year-old Tyler Westbrook and demonstrated to police how he suffocated the boy using a blanket and a doll as a model for the January 2007 murder.

    oh gosh that would be so horrible for the little boy getting killed...i was almost killed once and all i could think was that i was going to die and my life was over...i would not want a 2 year old feeling that way....and i dont think anyone else unless they are a sick sick person would either.

    we had almost died in a grain truck accident ...with my older sister....we had been sucked underneath the grain and we were suffocated for 4 minutes before our father realized that we were not joking and had to turn the ogger off and put the truck bed back upright and pull us out....i still have a shot glass of grain that fell out of my clothes when i went home that day....
