Jury Orders $15 Million Payout in Kaitlin Armstrong Murder Case

 

Texas court orders Kaitlin Armstrong to pay murder victim's family $15M

In a landmark decision, a Texas jury has ordered Kaitlin Armstrong to pay $15 million to the family of Anna Moriah "Mo" Wilson, a professional cyclist whom Armstrong was found guilty of murdering in May 2022. The ruling, delivered by a Texas court, comes after Armstrong's conviction in November for the brutal slaying of Wilson in an East Austin home.

 

Wilson's parents, Karen and Eric Wilson, had filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Armstrong last month, seeking over $1 million in damages. The jury's decision significantly exceeded this amount, reflecting the severity of Armstrong's actions and their impact on Wilson's family.

 

Armstrong, 37, was convicted of shooting the 25-year-old Wilson twice in the head and once through the heart. The motive behind the murder was jealousy, as Wilson had gone on a date with Colin Strickland, Armstrong's on-again-off-again boyfriend, shortly before the attack. According to prosecutors, Armstrong used the Strava app to track Wilson's location and had access to Strickland's Apple and Gmail accounts, through which she monitored his communications.

 

The night of the murder, Wilson was staying at a friend's apartment in Austin while visiting Texas for a race. Armstrong, driven by jealousy, allegedly waited until Strickland had dropped Wilson off before carrying out the fatal attack.

 

The jury's $15 million award includes $5 million each for Wilson’s parents and an additional $5 million in exemplary damages. The exemplary damages are intended to serve as a deterrent against similar actions by Armstrong or others in the future. The court also stipulated that Wilson’s parents could recover post-judgment interest of 8.5% per year, in addition to all taxable court costs.

 

Armstrong was sentenced to 90 years in prison for the murder, with eligibility for parole after serving 30 years. The financial judgment against her is seen as a measure of justice for Wilson’s family, who continue to grapple with their devastating loss.

 

This case has drawn significant attention due to the tragic circumstances and the high-profile nature of those involved. Wilson was a rising star in the professional cycling world, and her untimely death sent shockwaves through the sporting community.

 

The decision marks a significant closure for Wilson’s family, who sought accountability and justice for their daughter. The court’s ruling not only addresses the wrongful death but also emphasizes the gravity of Armstrong's actions, aiming to prevent such tragedies in the future.
