A former Norwalk woman has been arrested and jailed in Sandusky, charged in the shooting of her stepfather that took place Wednesday night in that city.

Katie S. Wilson, 25, now of Sandusky and formerly of Glover Avenue in Norwalk, is charged with complicity to aggravated robbery. She has been jailed since Wednesday, the night of the shooting, on two unrelated warrants.

Bond has been set at $51,351.

Wilson told police the shooting was a "set-up" as she arranged a drug deal with her stepfather, Bartt Carruthers, with the intent to rob him, according to the Sandusky Register. The robbery went awry, however, and Carruthers was shot three times at a car wash on Perkins Avenue.

Carruthers, 49, is recovering at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.

As for the gunman, he remains at large and police say Wilson isn't providing details about his identity.

In October 2011, Wilson and her biological father, Eugene F. Wilson, were arrested after she was seen about to jump off a Berlin Heights-area bypass.

She was arrested on a Norwalk Municipal Court warrant and charged with theft of dangerous drugs. She previously was the subject of two Norwalk Police Department investigations.

Her brother, Eugene F. Wilson Jr., 23, of 46 Glover St., was sentenced to a community-based corrections facility in September after being convicted of two heroin offenses.

The younger Wilson also had a pending heroin-related case in Erie County Common Pleas Court last year in connection with a traffic stop that also involved the arrest of his father.

Wilson told a Perkins Township police officer that the pill bottle he saw fall to the ground from his father's pants leg during a consensual pat-down was his, police said. The suspect initially denied knowing anything about the bottle, which contained 150 balloons of suspected heroin that have a street value of more than $7,000.

The older Wilson said his son put the bottle inside his pants when they got pulled over, according to the police report.

I'd say the drug took the semi good looks right out of her.

Really are you ...

The family has some issues. Who shot Bart?


"The robbery went array, however, and Carruthers was shot three times at a car wash on Perkins Avenue." It's "awry" not "array" you loser editors at the Norwalk Rejector!! Geesh! You guys are terrible some times!


God help them


God help us all. Our society is quickly "going down the tubes".

What's that crap on her face?

R U Kidding me

she got shot too the bullet is sticking out of her cheek. oh ellis dee how do you find a strung out heroin addict good looking. you have very low standards or are you strung out too? just asking


I don't see how tattoos and facial piercings do a thing for anybody's looks. They don't look good on attractive people and certainly not the ones who aren't. Geesh.


2 years on heroin? went from ok to terrible! Post this families mugshots on a billboard and tell your children if you use heroin, you will like this trio!


That whole family is %#¢€ed up literally! They snitch on each other all the time and Katie is a lunatic who needs controlled medication! Maybe they all do! God help them!!!
