Qawmane Wilson, 24, of the 0-100 block of North Mayfield Avenue in Chicago’s North Austin neighborhood, has been charged with murder and home invasion for the death of his mother, Yolanda Holmes, in 2012, according to a Chicago Tribune report on Tuesday.

Wilson is being charged along with Eugene Spencer, 22, of the 6100 block of South Rockwell Street and Loriana Johnson, 23, of the 300 block of 131st Place. Spencer is the one who is accused of actually killed Holmes, and Johnson drove the vehicle for Spencer.

Wilson called Spencer and Johnson before, during, and after the murder, according to Wilson’s cell phone records. Both Wilson and Spencer admitted their role in the murder scheme.

Holmes, who was 45-year-old owner of the Nappy Headzsalon at the time of her death, was killed on Sept. 2, 2012 at 4:15 a.m. in her home located in the 1000 block of West Montrose Avenue. She died from a gunshot wound to the head and multiple stab wounds.

Wilson was reportedly arrested on Sunday following a police investigation which determined that he had arranged to have his mother killed. A week after Holmes was murdered, Wilson liquidated Holmes’ bank accounts which were valued at approximately $90,000, according to Maura White – the Assistant State’s Attorney. Wilson was the beneficiary of two of his mother’s life insurance policies, as well.
