The husband of a Morris County native woman whose body was found in Oklahoma in 2009 has admitted killing her just less than a month before he was scheduled for trial.
According to authorities, Jody Rilee-Wilson, a Roxbury native, was last seen alive on May 5, 2009. It was not until after that her body was found on an Oklahoma mountaintop that she was seen again.
After almost a decade from Jody’s Murder, Donald Lee Bocephus “Bo” Wilson, 40, who was scheduled to go on trial on Jan. 28th, pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge and the unlawful disposal of a body.
Officials say the case went unsolved until 2017 when Wilson’s father reportedly told police his son had smothered Jody with a plastic bag to allegedly prevent her from moving back to New Jersey with their baby.
