Washington Father Kills Daughter Over Argument About Baby Gate

An argument over installing a baby gate turned into a fight between a father and daughter in Washington state that left the mother of a newborn dead, according to prosecutors.

Wendell Wilson, 68, is accused of shooting his 38-year-old daughter Lila Wilson multiple times on June 10 at their home in Renton, Washington. Attorneys said that father shot his daughter six times, including twice in the head just feet away from her 13-month old son.

Renton Police said that Wilson claimed the argument stemmed over whether the baby gate would fit in the kitchen and that the two got in each other’s faces when the dispute “got crazy.” He is being held on $2 million for first-degree murder charges.
