A Killer's Word: Should Confession Free Two Men?

OKLAHOMA CITY -

Before he was executed in a separate killing, Michael Lee Wilson said he wanted to make things "right." According to several witnesses, Malcolm Scott and De’Marchoe Carpenter have served more than 20 years in prison for a crime they didn't commit.

Michael Lee Wilson was a cold-blooded killer who beat a store clerk to death and then went shopping for shoes.

But just days before his own death by lethal injection in 2014, Wilson wanted to right a wrong.

The Frontier

Wilson said two innocent men, Malcolm Scott and De’Marchoe Carpenter, had served more than 20 years in prison for a crime that he committed. But he had stayed silent until it was clear his time running out.

Wilson had fired the shots that killed a woman during a drive-by shooting in 1994, he said, and Scott and Carpenter weren’t even in the car. Because he was already facing the death penalty in a separate case, he never spoke up.
