Wilson said he found jewelry he recognized as Stanley’s in Bakers bag, as well as an iPhone where he saw a photo of who he thought was Stanley “dead and laying on the bathroom floor”, the document stated.
The description of the position of the female and her clothing matched the scene when homicide detectives were inside processing the crime scene.
Furthermore, Wilson told detectives he had a knife missing from a knife set he purchased. He described a knife matching the murder weapon found at the crime scene, the document stated.
He was unable to tell detectives why Baker would kill Stanley, or how Baker would even know where she lived without his assistance, according to the document.
After detectives obtained Baker’s cell phone number, they applied for a court order to obtain his phone records and cell tower locations of Baker’s phone during the time detectives believed the homicide to occur.
Baker’s phone was shown to be in the immediate area of the crime scene during the time the homicide was believe to have occurred, the affidavit stated.
Phone records also indicated that Wilson and Baker were communicating frequently on December 6 and 7, just days before Stanley’s body was found by police.
When Baker was arrested and interviewed, he admitted to killing Stanley and said he had been hired by Harvey Wilson to do it. Baker said Wilson was supposed to assist him but instead dropped him off at the home and left for Lawton, the affidavit stated.
“Baker stated he was supposed to steal Stanley’s safe and break her hand so she could not do her job as a home health care worker,” the document said. “Baker stated Wilson wanted the safe to get back items of jewelry he had purchased Stanley and to get cash he had given her.”
Baker was supposed to be paid for his services in the form of a car that belonged to Wilson and needed repairs, the affidavit stated.
Wilson’s and Baker’s case has been automatically assigned to Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley.
