A convicted murderer told a courtroom that he bashed his victim’s skull with a cinder block when she laughed at him for not being able to get an erection due to an overload of cocaine and alcohol.
Gary Wilson claims that he “snapped” when Carolyn Stone, 45, allegedly laughed at him for being unable to get an erection after he did too much cocaine. Angry and humiliated, Wilson proceeded to punch her, choke her, and drop a cinder block on her head. He then picked up the bloody cinder block and, once again, dropped it on her head.
Wilson was convicted of murder after pleading guilty to the 2009 killing, but now, he’s serving as a witness for the defense in the trial of Stone’s boyfriend’s son David Granskie Jr. who, according to reports, confessed to being one of three men who raped and murdered her. Granskie’s attorneys say that he told the officers what they wanted to hear because he is a heroin addict and claims that Wilson actually acted alone. Wilson agrees, claiming that he killed Stone on his own and that no rape ever occurred.
Still, a third person, Rocky DiTaranto, pleaded guilty of conspiracy in exchange for five years in prison, although he’s already been released. The entire group allegedly spent the weekend in 2009 binge-drinking, smoking marijuana, and doing large amounts of cocaine. The defense says that Wilson, DiTaranto and Stone all planned to have sex, but right before it was about to happen, DiTaranto backed out. When Stone and Wilson went to have sex, Wilson couldn’t hold an erection and Stone allegedly laughed at him. That’s when he, in a fit of rage, brutally murdered the woman.
“What kind of man can't get aroused in front of a naked woman?" Wilson claimed Stone said to him on the night of the murder.
"I tried to explain that I had been drinking too much and she just started laughing,” revealed Wilson in his testimony. “I told her it's not funny; it happens. And she kept laughing. So I snapped and I punched her. She fell back unconscious. After I had hit her I began to choke her and she had no fight in her.”
Prosecutors rested their case without any witnesses, but the defense continues to say that Granskie’s confession was not truthful and that Wilson acted alone. Now, Wilson’s claims seem to back that up.
