Information Reported

April 28th, 1998

40-year-old Terry Carlton W/M was shot to death inside this rich home on April 28, 1998, by his wife April Wilkens. Terry Carlton was the son of a millionaire in Tulsa, Don Carlton, who owned dealerships around the area. Wilkens shot and killed Carlton because Carlton abused her and raped her, and she shot him in self-defense. Wilkens had previously reported Carlton's abuse to the police, but Carlton would bribe the police so that they wouldn't believe Wilkens. Wilkens said Carlton terrorized her; breaking into her house several times the year she shot him and ransacking it so badly a high school friend considered it destroyed. Wilkens filed two protective orders against Carlton, but said he told her she would be dead if they became permanent. And that the police didn’t bother to enforce the temporary ones. She testified Carlton had also been blackmailing her with revenge porn. Carlton continued to violate the temporary restraining orders and the police did not care. Wilkens said. “He was calling me from jail. This police officer looked at my caller ID, he looked at the protective order and he did nothing. In fact, he said, ‘we just keep expecting to find you dead.’” On April 28, the day Wilkens killed Carlton, she went to his house to try and negotiate and create peace. But Carlton forced Wilkens to do drugs with him, and then raped her at gunpoint. Wilkens however was able to get ahold of the gun and fired several shots, striking Carlton several times and killing him. Police were called out and Wilkens was taken into custody. The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) nurse who treated Wilkens after she was arrested found two vaginal tears, bruises on her hands, wrists, arms and head, and redness on her hands and neck. The nurse also testified that the evidence supported Wilkens’s statement that Carlton had punched her in the face. However, despite all this evidence, Wilkens was sentenced to life in prison without parole. The reason for this? Don Carlton is friends with Tim Harris, the judge who sentenced her. It is thought that Don Carlton bribed Tim Harris in order to have Wilkens sentenced to life. She is currently still in prison, though there have been small protests and petitions to have her freed.
