Marcus Delon Wesson (born August 22, 1946) is an American man convicted of nine counts of first-degree murder and 14 sex crimes, including the rape and molestation of his underage daughters. All of his victims were his own children, fathered by incestuous relationships with his daughters and nieces, as well as the children by his wife. It is to date Fresno, California's worst mass murder.

After a March 12, 2004 standoff with police over a child custody issue, the nine bodies were discovered in a bedroom filled with antique coffins, each victim having been shot through the eye.

At his trial, Wesson offered as defense that his 25-year-old daughter Sebhrenah, whose 18-month-old son Marshey (Wesson's own son and grandson) was killed as well, had herself committed the murders, and then subsequently committed suicide. The murder weapon, a .22 caliber handgun was found with her body, and Sebhrenah's DNA was found on the gun, which lent credence to Wesson's claim.

Many potential jurors were excused from the trial after claiming to be 'terrified' to be in the same room with Wesson.

Wesson was convicted of nine counts of first-degree murder on June 17, 2005, and also found guilty on 14 counts of forcible sexual assault and the sexual molestation of seven of his own underage daughters and nieces. Wesson was sentenced to the death penalty on June 27, 2005.

Marcus Delon Wesson (born August 22, 1946) is a man convicted of nine counts of first-degree murder and 14 sex crimes, including the rape and molestation of his underage daughters. His victims were his own children, fathered by incestuous relationships with his daughters and nieces, as well as the children by his wife. He has been described as Fresno's worst mass murderer.

Murders:

Prior to March 12, 2004, Wesson had declared his intention to relocate his daughters and their children to Washington state, where Wesson's parents lived. On March 12, 2004, several members of Wesson's extended family, along with two daughters who rebelled against Wesson, converged on his family compound demanding the release of Wesson's other children.

Fresno police were summoned to what was described as a child custody issue, and a standoff ensued. During the course of the standoff, Wesson, who at first appeared cooperative to the police, was permitted to step away and go back into his house. Fresno police testified they did not hear gunshots being fired shortly after, though other witnesses present at the standoff testified they did hear gunshots fired at that time.

In the aftermath, nine bodies of Wesson's daughters and their children were discovered in a bedroom filled with antique coffins. Each victim had been shot through the eye. Authorities, relatives and public records suggest he has fathered up to 18 children with seven women. Wesson's other children, who were not present inside the house, survived the incident.

Trial:

At his trial, Wesson, represented by public defenders Peter Jones and Ralph Torres, presented the defense that his 25-year-old daughter Sebhrenah, whose 18-month-old son Marshey (Wesson's own son and grandson) was killed as well, had herself committed the murders, and then subsequently committed suicide. The murder weapon, a .22 caliber handgun, was found with her body, and Sebhrenah's DNA was found on the gun, which lent credence to Wesson's claim.

The jury declined to find that Wesson fired the fatal shots, but convicted him of murder anyway, presumably finding that he had persuaded his children to enter into a suicide pact.

Conviction and sentence:

Wesson was convicted of nine counts of first-degree murder on June 17, 2005, and also found guilty on 14 counts of forcible sexual assault and the sexual molestation of seven of his daughters and nieces. Wesson was sentenced to death on June 27, 2005.

9 dead in Fresno home:

Bodies of seven children age 8 and younger are discovered after Marcus Wesson, 57, surrenders and is arrested after a 2-hour standoff.

Saturday, March 13, 2004

At a small home near Roeding Park where authorities found a stack of nine bodies in one room and 10 caskets in another, Fresno police on Friday arrested a man suspected of fathering some of the victims and murdering them all.

Police arrested Marcus Wesson, 57, on suspicion of homicide after a two-hour standoff in an established neighborhood near Olive Avenue and Golden State Boulevard.

Authorities relayed a twisted scene of death at the house, with the bodies of young women and small children intertwined with clothing and stacked together in a back bedroom.

The bodies were so entangled that it took hours for police to confirm the number of dead. Police Chief Jerry Dyer said: "There may have been some kind of ritual involved, but we have to make that determination."

In a scene that began shortly after 10 p.m. and was expected to continue into the early morning, authorities began removing the bodies of two women and seven children, including infants. Some bodies were so small that they were carried out in white body bags, cradled in the arms of officials.

The majority of victims were female - one in her 20s, one about 17 and children ranging from 1 to 8. Authorities did not release the identities of the victims or causes of death. They did not know whether they were killed in the house or elsewhere. Police believed Wesson had blood on his shirt when he surrendered.

A man who identified himself only as Mike and who said he was Wesson's brother-in-law said Wesson "thought he was God."

Police acknowledged that they were investigating a possible cult angle.

Several neighbors reported hearing gunshots. One police officer said some of the victims appeared to have been shot. Police responded to a child-custody dispute at the home at 761 W. Hammond Ave. about 2:30 p.m. Two women told officers they had given custody of their children to Wesson and wanted them back. Wesson allegedly refused.

Other women have said they left their children in Wesson's custody, authorities said.

Neighbor Linda Morales, 44, said she heard two to three gunshots, followed by screaming, between 2:30 and 3 p.m. Friday.

When police arrived, Wesson ran into the house and locked himself inside. Authorities called in the SWAT team and, after about two hours, Wesson walked outside and surrendered.

Distraught at the news, some relatives of the dead collapsed near the house. At least one woman was taken away by ambulance. Dyer said later that four women who gathered outside the house were the mothers of some of the victims and Wesson was the father.

Dozens of people gathered outside the house during the afternoon and into the evening. A young man who identified himself only as a relative of a victim leaned against a brick wall, not far from the police tape blocking the house. Head bowed and crying, he ignored questions and attempted to get into a parked, green Chevrolet Cavalier. Another man had to help him into the car. They did not drive away, but sat in the car.

Another man, standing about 15 feet from the young man, also identified himself only as a family member of the victims. He said: "Nobody is going to be talking about this. Right now, everybody is pretty upset."

He cried as he spoke.

The bodies were found in a roughly 1,000-square-foot, one-story home built in 1966. State property records show the house was sold to Rosa Solorio last September for $100,000. Neighbors said Wesson moved in about six to eight months ago.

Police said they found 10 unused caskets in a front room of the house. A friend of Wesson's children said they had been in the home for a long time; a relative said Wesson intended to use the wood for furniture. Lawyer Frank Muna said he saw the caskets in an antique shop several years ago. They were unique, he said, hand-carved in rich wood and larger than normal. The shop owner told Muna he sold them to Wesson, who had purchased property from Muna a few years ago.

Mike, the man who identified himself as Wesson's brother-in-law, said Wesson was a Vietnam veteran originally from San Jose.

Kenny Isaac, 35, who has lived in the neighborhood for 13 years, described the home's residents - including up to six women - as "weird."

"I only saw the older women," he said. "They would drive by, and they would glance down. They did not want to look at you."

One neighbor said the women typically wore black skirts, white or gray blouses and black, high-heeled shoes.

Lupa Montejano, 38, and Laticia Juarez, 24, live on Hammond Avenue. Juarez said: "They were quiet people. You wouldn't expect this to happen."

After 9 p.m., police were beginning a search of the home and also were planning to search the school bus. At 10:30 p.m., coroners began to wheel bodies out on gurneys.

Investigators waited several hours before beginning a close examination of the house and the bus. The delay allowed authorities to get the proper search warrants.

Police closed off about a square quarter-mile around the house during the standoff. Traffic was snarled on Olive Avenue. The area was sealed off until about 6:30 p.m.

After the streets reopened, people started gathering and milling on the street. Yellow police tape circled roughly 200 feet around the house.

The police planned to work through the night, gathering evidence. There were still bodies inside the house as of midnight, and Dyer said it would probably take another three hours before all bodies were removed.

Mayor Alan Autry arrived just before 11:30 p.m., telling reporters: "This is obviously a terrible, horrific tragedy. It appears we have the perpetrator in custody. The only thing we can do now is mourn. We mourn for the kids. We mourn for the police who had to be out here. We mourn for the community."

Dyer said he will appear on the show at 4:30 a.m., or 7:30 on the East Coast.

"I hesitated whether or not to do that," Dyer said. "I think it's important for the people of America to know that this is an aberration [for Fresno]."

The nine deaths represent the largest mass killing in Fresno since 1993, when seven people were killed in the Carrillo's Club murders in rural Fresno.
