The argument reportedly escalated into a fight, during which Wilson used a knife and a machete to inflict several wounds to the woman’s body.

Wilson, who has a son with Nickeisha, turned up at the Clark's Town Police Station, and told the officers on duty that he had just killed his common-law-wife. It is alleged that he told the cops that he recently found out that she was cheating on him and killed her out of jealousy. 

His court date is being finalised.
