Wade Wilson, 30, was convicted Wednesday of murdering two women on October 7, 2019, in Cape Coral, Florida. Wilson, who has numerous facial tattoos, including a swastika, was found guilty of first-degree premeditated murder in the deaths of Kristine Melton, 35, and Diane Ruiz, 43, the New York Post reported.

Wilson is now eligible for the death penalty. A Cape Coral police official stated, “No matter what the decision is that the jury comes back with on the penalty phase, there is no situation where he is going to be walking the streets.” He added, “An animal like this needs to be put away.”

Wilson strangled Melton at her home after meeting her at a bar and tied her up. He later abducted Ruiz, asked for directions, strangled her, and repeatedly ran over her body with his car. Jurors were told he did this “until she looked like spaghetti.”

After the murders, Wilson appeared at a local business, wearing bloodstained clothes and missing teeth. He fled before police arrived, broke into a home to hide, and called his father. A prosecutor said Wilson bragged about the murders to his father, who then alerted authorities.

When asked why he committed the killings, Wilson responded, “I just wanted to do it,” a prosecutor revealed. Besides murder, Wilson was also convicted of grand theft, burglary, battery, and petit theft.

The state seeks the death penalty, pending a medical examination of Wilson. The penalty phase starts on June 20, requiring eight out of 12 jurors to vote in favor of the death penalty, the Post article noted.
