KENTON COUNTY (KY) – The Felicity man sentenced to 18 years to life in the murder of Brown County woman Courtney Fowler has now pleaded guilty to murder in Kentucky.

Wilcox withdrew a plea of not guilty on Feb. 25 and has pleaded guilty to the murder of his best friend Zackary Gilkison in Kenton County.

Fowler was found dead inside a home on J Bolender Road at approximately 6:33 p.m. in April 2015. Police issued a be-on-the-look-out for Wilcox, the suspect in the case. He was later pleaded guilty to the murder of Fowler.

Wilcox was sentenced on Monday, Sept. 21, to 18-years to life in prison for the murder of Fowler by Brown County Court of Common Pleas Judge Scott T. Gusweiler. Wilcox’s sentence includes a mandatory three-years in prison for firearm specification in addition to the 15-years to life sentence he received for a conviction of felony murder in the first degree.

Wilcox lead police on a multiple county chase through Ohio ended in Anderson Township. The chase ended with Wilcox seeking a “suicide by cop” after allegedly telling an officer to shoot him. In the probable cause affidavit Wilcox allegedly said that music told him to shoot Fowler and Gilkison but those claims were found to be untrue.

Wilcox is set to be sentenced in Kentucky on March 28.
