In January 2017, Kenneth Lee Hopkins, 27, was found guilty by a jury in the murder of 19-year-old Marshay Wesson and her unborn son. Wesson was found shot multiple times in her car while waiting on Hopkins near East 28th Street North and North Wheeling Ave in June 2012. She was eight-and-a-half months pregnant.
Prosecutors closed with arguments that Wesson was calling Hopkins right up until the moments before she was shot multiple times.
Hopkins’ attorneys said their client didn’t kill anyone and said the murder weapon was found in another man’s car.
