Police say he killed Lisa Wilson, 65, and two daughters Bryonny, 42, and Bronwyn, 38, Wednesday afternoon. Investigators say the three women were shot multiple times in their home on Caywood Drive.
The Wilson’s neighbors and family members say they’re shocked and saddened.
“I pray for the family. It’s really hard. With everything that’s going on today, with the stress of everybody trying to live, it’s pretty tough on the ones who can’t do it so they break down and this is what happens. It’s really sad,” said Frances James, a neighbor.
We’re learning more about the man charged and the victims.
Bryonny “Bry” Wilson worked with the Lexington Public Library. Bronwyn was a cake decorator at Mondelli’s Bakeshop.
Lisa was a longtime nurse at Good Samaritan Hospital.
Toni Spicer, one of Lisa’s former coworkers, said Lisa made her patients laugh as they worked toward recovery. Spicer said Lisa was the provider of her family, working long shifts to support her daughters and husband.
Spicer said Steven Wilson stayed at home and drove his family members to work and gatherings.
Those who knew the Wilsons said, from what they saw, the family was stable and happy in each other’s company.
“I honestly don’t think I’ve ever wrapped my head around it. It’s hard to comprehend,” Spicer said. “I do see bad things and a lot of that comes with a reason. So, when you have something like this, you just did pick and pick and try to figure out what could have possibly happened and what could have possibly gone wrong.”
Wilson is scheduled to be back in court on June 2.
