Joyce Brown-Rodriguez was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in state prison for conspiring with her son to murder Christopher M. Wilson in Middletown Township in December of 2020.
Brown-Rodriguez, 56, of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty in December to third-degree murder, criminal conspiracy, and related charges. Last month, Brown-Rodriguez testified against her son who was convicted by a Bucks County jury of first-degree murder and related charges.
Five of Wilson’s daughters gave emotional impact statements before Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley, describing their father as a hard-working, devoted, and loving man whose loss has left an emptiness in their lives.
“The day I got that phone call is a day I will never forget,” one of the daughters testified. “Hearing those words crushed me.”
