- Chance Wilson charged with murder after giving 16-year-old Saleda back to back shots of meth
- As trial approaches Deanna Wilson says she feels like she has lost both children
The mother of a 16-year-old girl who died when her big brother injected her with meth has said she hopes her son will stay in prison.
With the murder trial of her son, Chance, due to start in Oklahoma City next week, Deanna Wilson has said she wants him to remain locked up ‘so he can’t hurt anyone else’.
Chance Wilson, 29, is accused of killing his teenage sister Saleda by giving her back to back shots of meth on July 7 last year.

‘It’s always going to be a “lose lose’” because I lost both of my kids,’ Ms Wilson told Kfor News as she prepared for the case to begin next Monday.
Since losing her daughter, who she described as ‘full of life’, Ms Wilson has carried a key chain containing Saleda’s ashes.
Coming to terms with knowing she will never be able to hug her daughter again has been hard, but the mother said she has also had to come to terms with knowing she may never be able to hug her son again too.
‘I don’t believe he needs to get out. I love my son, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t want him to hurt anyone else,’ she said.
Chance admitted to giving his sister two back to back shots of meth at the family home in July last year, but said it was at his sister’s request.

Saleda’s body was found a few hours later by her father.
According to court documents, Chance and a co-worker had bought some meth on July 6 and returned to the family home.
On the morning of July 7 he allegedly gave his sister some of the meth. The co-worker told police that when Saleda started ‘freaking out’ Chance suggested putting her in the shower, according Koco news reported.
A few hours later Saleda’s father, Gary, arrived home and found his daughter’s body.
Murder charges were brought against Chance a month later.

Ms Wilson said Saleda looked up to Chance, who was 11 years older than her.
‘She loved him. That’s her big brother,’ Ms Wilson told Kfor, adding that Saleda, who would have just celebrated her 18th birthday, would have done anything for Chance.
Ms Wilson, a recovered addict, added: ‘Drugs do stupid things to people. I know., I’ve been there.’
The murder trial is due to begin on Monday but the district attorney’s office said that could change if a deal is reached with the defense attorney.
Mom looks back on daughter’s death as son prepares for trial
OKLAHOMA CITY — A big brother is accused in the murder of his own sister. The case is headed to trial first thing next week.
Thursday the victim’s mother sat down exclusively with NewsChannel 4 to reveal her heartbreak over losing not one, but two of her children.
Chance Wilson is accused of injecting a lethal dose of meth into his 16-year-old sister, Saleda.
Deanna Wilson, the victim’s mother, said, “She was full of life and anyone that saw her knew she was full of life.”
Deanna says she will always remember Saleda as her angel. The 16-year-old died in July of 2012. Prosecutors have charged her older brother, Chance Wilson, with her death.
Chance is also Deanna’s child.
Deanna says the last 15 months have been incredibly hard.
She said, “It’s always going to be a ‘lose lose’ because I lost both of my kids.”
Court records show Chance admitted to giving Saleda two back to back shots of meth. She was later found dead by her father.
A month later a charge of murder one was filed against Chance.
Deanna said, “He said, ‘Momma, I didn’t do it. I didn’t do it.’”
Deanna says Saleda adored her big brother. There was eleven years between the two siblings. She believes Saleda would have done anything for Chance.
Deanna said, “She loved him. That’s her big brother.”
Deanna admits to being a part of the problem in her son’s life.
She said, “Drugs do stupid things to people. I know. I’ve been there.”
But she has since worked through a recovery program and counseling to get her life in order.
She carries a container with Saleda’s ashes on her keyring. She knows she will never again hug her daughter and now believes, depending on the outcome of the trial, she may never again hug her son.
Deanna said, “I don’t believe he needs to get out. I love my son, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t want him to hurt anyone else.”
Saleda would have celebrated her 18th birthday a couple of weeks ago.
The trial is set to begin Monday, November 4. However, the district attorney’s office says that could change if a deal is reached with defense attorney’s on the case.
Man faces murder charge in teen sister’s methamphetamine death
Charges filed against Chance Alan Wilson
OKLAHOMA CITY —A 28-year-old man from Purcell was charged in Oklahoma County Court on Tuesday with killing his sister by injecting her with methamphetamine, court officials confirmed.
Chance Alan Wilson faces a first-degree murder charge in the July 7 death of Saleda Wilson, 16, of Oklahoma City.
Police were called about a suspicious death at a home in the 1400 block of North Court at about 4:25 p.m. on July 7. Officers said Garry Wilson told investigators he had found his daughter dead inside the home.
According to court documents, Chance Wilson had been working at a job in northeast Oklahoma City, when he and a co-worker bought some meth on July 6. Wilson, the co-worker, Saleda Wilson and another woman were at the teen’s home, located near Northeast 30th Street and Prospect Avenue.
The co-worker said both he and Chance Wilson had “shot up” with the meth purchased earlier that day. He also told police that he saw Chance Wilson inject his sister, Saleda Wilson, with 20 units of meth into her right arm.
Court documents indicate they injected more meth again the next morning.
Chance Wilson gave his sister three times as much meth the next morning than he had the night before, according to court documents. Soon after, the co-worker told police, Saleda Wilson was “messed up” and “freaking out.” He called Chance Wilson, who told him to put the girl in the shower and run water on her, according to court documents.
The co-worker helped the teen into the shower, which initially seemed to help her before she fell asleep for a few hours, he said. Soon after, Garry Wilson arrived to find his daughter dead.
On Aug. 9, detectives interviewed Chance Wilson at the McClain County Jail, where he was in custody on unrelated complaints. Authorities said his story was similar to the co-worker’s except that, he said, Saleda Wilson had smoked meth on July 6 at the home where the drugs were originally purchased.
Chance Wilson denied giving his sister the first injection on July 6 but acknowledged giving her back-to-back shots on July 7. He told investigators that it was at her request.
