Woman pleads guilty to murdering 15 year old
NORTHWOOD, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Samantha Wilson pleaded guilty Thursday for the murder of 15-year-old Jonah Borth. The guilty pleas included manslaughter and contact by bodily fluids for the January 2020 shooting of Borth.
Court documents say Wilson will spend 20 years in prison, serve 5 years of supervised probation and must register as an offender against children.
On January 26, 2020, Wilson was inside her home with four other individuals. Police say she took possession of a 9mm handgun and fired one round, striking Borth in the upper chest. Jonah Borth died from his injuries.
Police say Ray Borth (father of Jonah) and suspect Wilson’s two minor children, both 8 years old, were also in the home at the time.
Upon arrival at the jail, Wilson spit on correctional officers. She was issued a citation for contact by bodily fluids.
