Conviction upheld in slaying triggered by pizza, rent

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Comstock Park man who fatally beat his cousin in a dispute over pizza, then fled with the victim’s wallet and cellphone  “because he was scared,’’ failed to convince a three-judge panel he was acting in self-defense.

Blood splatters in their Alpine Township apartment were consistent with Brandon Nelson being struck several times while on the ground, the Court of Appeals cited in upholding the second-degree murder conviction of 26-year-old Kyle Alan Wilson.

Wilson, who is serving a 46- to 150-year sentence, is no stranger to prison. He moved in with Nelson in 2013 after serving more than five years for killing a 15-year-old Barry County boy in a dispute over $80.
