Lawrence Klansman convicted in 1996 of murder in Jefferson County up for parole

Michael Wilkins

A Lawrence man with ties to a self-styled Ku Klux Klan group who was convicted in 1996 of a Jefferson County murder faces a parole hearing in March.

Even if Michael Dean Wilkins, 39, is granted parole for his first-degree murder conviction in the 1993 shooting death of 25-year-old David Shipley, Wilkins still faces about 11 years of prison time for convictions of conspiracy and aggravated robbery in the case, according to court records.

A judge after the verdict ordered Wilkins to serve his sentences consecutively. The Kansas Supreme Court in 1999 threw out his conviction for a count of conspiracy to commit robbery saying his acts were part of one conspiracy to kill and rob Wilkins.

Authorities also alleged Wilkins took a necklace from Shipley.

“In brief, Wilkins’ 1996 convictions involved murder, sex, drugs, and the Ku Klux Klan,” wrote Justice Carol Beier in a decision on a 2007 appeal in the case.

According to news reports and court records, Wilkins, an inmate at the Lansing Correctional Facility, was known as an “enforcer” for the Klan group that started in Davenport, Iowa, but had recruited members, including teenage girls, in Lawrence.

Wilkins shot Shipley, a fellow member, in the head with a .22-caliber rifle. Prosecutors said the killing was based on an order from the group’s leader, Mike Bittle, who eventually reached a plea deal with prosecutors and testified against Wilkins.

According to the department of corrections, Bittle served eight years in prison for a conspiracy conviction and died in 2008 while he was on parole.

Authorities believed Bittle and Shipley had differences over girls and money from the sale of motorcycles. Witnesses said Shipley threatened to tell police about Bittle’s marijuana growth operation. Shipley’s remains were found in 1996 in a rural pond on property owned by Wilkins’ family in southeastern Jefferson County.

The department of corrections is accepting comments from the public on Wilkins’ first-degree murder conviction. His hearing will be in March before the parole board makes a decision in April.

Comments can be made at the corrections website, www.dc.state.ks.us. The website also has forms that can be filled out and mailed to the parole board.

Crazyredneckmomma says hes innocent because he is. If u knew who he was u would agree as well. I definitly agree with crazyredneckmomma. Proof is the courts didnot have it all there. Thats proof and he is not that kind of person!!!!!!!!!!!!!

crazyredneckmomma4 4 years, 1 month ago

There are people (people I know personally and am very close to) that were never interviewed by authorities that have evidence that it is impossible for Mike to be guilty.

I wish if u have anything bad or just down right mean to say about this keep it to youself he is a wonderful person and he has paid the price already for something he didnt even do.

Crazybaby01 4 years, 1 month ago

I totally agree he has done his time and anyone who has mean and evil things to say should keep it to there self. Doesn't people know that karma is cruel and you should never wish death on anyone and saying someone should rot in prison is basically wishing them dead. He is a very good man, son, father, grandfather, and husband and I know him very well and he is INNOCENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and he has lost 15 years of his life with his family and children and he deserves to go home to them!!!

crazyredneckmomma4 4 years, 1 month ago

First of all, when all of this supposedly took place Mike was young no ones perfect and associating with the wrong crowd doesnt mean your a bad person or a murderer. There are only 3 people who know the TRUTH, 2 are dead and one is paying for a crime he didnt commit with his own life.

hitman33 4 years, 1 month ago

If ONLY 3 people know the truth,and you are not one of them, how are you so sure he didn't do it????????? Sound like you doesn't know nothing!!!! The only person that paid for this with their life was Shipley.

crazyredneckmomma4 4 years, 1 month ago

There are facts and evidence that were not examined!!! it wasnt a fair trial to say the least. Come on now...are you human? if you were accused of a serious crime wouldnt you want EVERY piece of evidence examined, every person with relevant information to be interviewed??

i thought being in the kkk mean't you killed people of ethnic colors,not a fellow aryan brother.is that not right ,my people????

Crazybaby01 4 years, 1 month ago

He didn't kill a fellow aryan brother, he is innocent, the real murderer died in 2008 before the truth could come out. He deserves to be free, he's paid his debt to society.

sr80 4 years, 1 month ago

thats the way the cookie crumbles its just too bad.

Crazybaby01 4 years, 1 month ago

No it ain't just too bad because he has done his sentence and done good while in there and he will be home.

Crazybaby01 4 years, 1 month ago

What's that mean you don't exist son? He is a human and you wouldn't want people treating your family like that if you knew they was innocent. Karma is a bitch remember that when you talk about human beings like that.

Again, crazymomma and chihuahua, give us some evidence to prove his innocence.

crazyredneckmomma4 4 years, 1 month ago

Are you people ignorant? The whole damn trial was a joke. there were several rules broken on the part of the prosecution. there was evidence that Mike is innocent that was not presented to the court. the jury was not unbiased. there were witnesses that can and should have been called into court to testify for the defense that can prove Mikes innocence. hell they still need to interview these people. Mike's innocence can still be proven. Its not our job to do the work that the authorities (corrupt in jefferson county) should have done to begin with. I cant wait for the day when the truth does come out and all of you that think Mike is guilty are proven wrong.

Deja Coffin 4 years, 1 month ago

If you can't wait for the truth to come out, then you would be the first one actually saying what truths need to be told. Instead you sit here and repeat your claim of innocence without any proof. I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt IF you actually stated what rules were broken and what evidence wasn't presented.

Interesting that you say not to judge a book by its cover, yet you are tirelessly defending a member of the KKK. The cover is the only thing that the klan judges.

This comment is for all of the ignorance that is being displayed in the comments made about mike wilkins that are negative! if you want proof that he is innocent maybe you should talk to the prosecuting attorney that tried this case? his name is Dan Owens. ask him why county funds were spent to pay witnesses for the prosecution? maybe you should ask him why the key witness for the state was given full immunity when he couldnt pass a lie detector test? (failed it three times!) passing a lie detector test is part of full immunity agreement. He failed! Also ask him why the alleged teeth they found of the victim were tested and found to hbe that of a rodent; most likely a possum! (tests were ran by forensic analysts) also for the record the Wilkins family doesnt even own a pond! They never have, the papers cant even print accurate info. A case purely ran off of heresay! In the kangaroo court system of jefferson county! so go talk ignorance somewhere else!

Also the prosecution says that Mike broke the gun during the murder in 1993. THAT IS A BOLD FACE LIE!! My husband and Mike's brother broke the gun in 1994 by backing over it with a tractor. So right there is a MAJOR DISCREPANCY on the part of the prosecution. HELLO... why is it that my husband and mikes brother weren't called as witnesses???

Deja Coffin 4 years, 1 month ago

So now you're saying that it wasn't Mr. Shipley they found in the pond but a dead opossum. What frustrates me is that IF he is innocent I would hope you would not only want justice for your family/friend but you would want justice for Mr. Shipley because IF what you say is true, then there is a murderer among us (or as you say, was among us until 2008) and I think that should be the main focus.

Please read this comment section. Please think carefully before you propose any further cuts to education. At the very least, please consider additional funding for Jefferson Co.

jhawkinsf 4 years, 1 month ago

To the posters who claim this man is innocent: There is a presumption of innocence in courts of law, making it very difficult to convict even the guilty. However, after a jury has convicted a person, there is a presumption of guilt. The burden of proof is now on you. I've seen nothing here that comes close to meeting that burden, let alone convince even a casual observer to change their mind. Until you have met your burden, I'll believe him guilty. He is right where he belongs.

let me tell u something i havnt known this man my whole life but i have known him most of it and i can tell u he is not that kind of person. he is a very WONDERFUL person and he will get out. U CAN BANK ON THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

crazyredneckmomma4 4 years, 1 month ago

jhawkins your comment is totally true however all persons have a right to a FAIR trial by a jury of their peers. Not by a biased jury. When a jury is selected, the potential jurors should not have prior opinions about the defendant (hence UNBIASED) that was not the case in this trial.

ivalueamerica 4 years, 1 month ago

he did commit murder, was convicted of it. He chose to use drugs in prison, he did not have to.

If he earns parole, then let him out, but your ramblings have convinced no one. Just because you think he is a nice guy, means NOTHING.

Throughout history, there were many nice guys, sweet little old ladies, young children innocent and sweet that have committed horrible acts under a variety of circumstances.

I understand the family wanting the best for their relative. It is only natural. The problem seems to be that they don't know the best thing. They think it is best to have him out and about. He is a Klansman. He was involved in nefarious activities. He was convicted. Family of this man: It is best that he is in prison. That is where he belongs.

If I had a violent criminal white supremacist in my family, I would understand that the world would be better off with him in prison. It is only time before those people turn on their own families and friends, and then it wouldn't be so easy for them to say "Let him go." But those people he hurt? Those are someone's family. The people he could have potentially hurt, and would in the future? Those are someone's family.

Nice guy?? Are we sure?? Doesnt KKK=hate. And when you kill somebody does that mean you are a nice guy. Whoever thinks this guy is a nice guy is an idiot. Prison probly has made his mind even much more full of hate before he went in. Does anybody watch A & E or National Geo Channel when they go up close and inside the walls? Maybe 1 out of 100 is nice and deserves to be set free and placed back out into society. Other than that these guys if there not monsters before they go in they become one over time.

According to court records: "According to Bittle, Shipley suggested that Bittle start up Klan activities again because it would be a good way to "pick up girls" because the girls would think it was "cool." Right here shows how juvenile these people were at the time. Which also shows how when your young you can make mistakes by associating with the wrong people. Just because you associate with the wrong people you are a bad person or a murderer

hitman33 4 years, 1 month ago

Hanging out with the wrong crowd doesn't make you a murderer. Shooting someone in the eye and making them "turtle bait' makes you a murderer.

crazyredneckmomma4 4 years, 1 month ago

Bittle stated that as an initiation rite, new female members would have to sleep with three male Klan members.

Bittle testified that the female members would shoplift to support the Klan and sometimes engage in prostitution at his orders

Bittle stated that he was in charge of controlling the relationships of the female members.

After the defendant, Shipley, and Gray left the motel, Bittle began having second thoughts and spent a sleepless night because he knew what he had done was wrong.

Are you freaking serious?? Bittle "spent a sleepless night because he knew what he had done was wrong" A monster that makes "female members shoplift, engage in prostitution at his orders and was in charge of controlling the relationships of the female members does not have a conscience. This is BS. Bittle is the real killer. he got off easy by serving 8 years then dying. Mike did not admit to doing this because HE DIDNT DO IT. So the real murderer (to save his own) turns states evidence against Mike, gets 8 years and Mike tells the truth and gets life... That the justice system for you!!

Can we really call this "group" that was lead by Bittle the KKK if all they were involved in was sex and drugs????

"Gray took two polygraph tests for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, and neither polygraph report was given to Wilkins or his counsel before trial. Each report contained the examiner's conclusion that Gray was being deceptive."

Gray ultimately received a promise of immunity in exchange for truthful testimony against Wilkins.

This statement is according to official court records. Right here is reason to believe something fishy is going on on the prosecutions part...

Yes it does. One doesn't pass or fail the whole polygraph test like one would a math test. One passes or fails individual questions asked. I am sure he passes the question "did Wilkins kill Shipley". Doesn't you watch Muarey Povich????

I played high school sports with this person. nothing from an area of hatfield-mccoy like scotch-irish citizens surprises me. those people up there fight over anything and yes the cops are corrupt. even so, all of this reflects on that horrible county as it should.

Are you on some sort of medication? I have lived in Jefferson County for over 40 years and I don't think you know what you are talking about. Name one group that you designate as Hatfield - Mccoy. I would also like to know how you have figured out that the area is populated by Scots - Irish (you drink scotch, it is not a race). If you look at the crime rate in Jefferson County, it has a considerably smaller ratio of citizens/violent crimes than Lawrence does.

O....m.....g...... Went to bed, woke up and couldn't get back to sleep so I decided to do some reading on the threads and BOY did I pick a doozy! Now my husband is ALSO awake and reading it with me and our mouths are wide open and we are giggling quite a bit. Wow....oh wow...I really am at a loss for words! If anything, reading the "crazy" comments has made me believe most definately his is guilty. Although, if I ever go off the deep end and commit some awful crime, I do hope the judicial system has changed to the one crazymama supports-he's innocent because she said so...there's your proof idiots! Jeez..can't you ignorant people see that?? So anyways, hopefully I will have a crazy mama, brother, sister or yes, even a chiuaua (yea I can't spell either), come forth to proclaim my innocence, the jury will believe them and I will be set freeeeee! That's justice baby! I hope I can get back to sleep at all tonight after reading this hot mess!

Everyone needs to lay off Mikes family. Some of your comments are hurtful. Have you ever read articles when someone gets released from prison years later proving they was innocent. Im sure thats gonna be the case here. Reading alot of your posts in the past claiming the news and police didnt have the story facts correct. Do you not think this is one of them? The gun the police have as the murder weapon was broke and never repaired many years before this murder took place. The parents have no pond on their property. Kkk? Yea ok. Mike is white and so was the guy who was murdered. That makes since doesnt it? The peron who committed the murder was given immunity. Several of the crimes Mike was accussed of have already been thrown out of court since his sentencing. I know Mike and he wouldnt hurt anyone. He got the shaft for someone elses crime. He has been taken from his loved ones on false accusations. Its a proven fact he didnt get a fair trial from the start. At the end of the trial his attorney wrote a letter claiming he wasnt in good health and couldnt represent him they way he shouldve. But that didnt matter. In my heart I know Mike is innocent and it will eventually come out. Dont say hurtful things to his family till you know the whole truth.

Is the jury of his peers supposed to include people that were in his same graduating class from high school? I think not! That is not the way the judicial system works!

I think not! So keep on believing that this man got a fAIR trial! When deep down you know he did not!

For all of you who are ku students and ku fans, or associated with ku: maybe you should ask yourselves why the entire ku legal department(professors&students) went to bat for mike wilkins? its because they know that everything about this case was corrupt, heresay, and to say the least circumstantial! there is currently a pending appeal with the federal courts that was submitted, represented or whatever you want to call it, by KU! whats that tell you? they are putting forth effort for a murderer? no! they are giving representation to a man that they know is innocent and was not given a fair trial! so shut the hell up and get over it!

hail2oldku 4 years, 1 month ago

Note to self - if ever in need of legal counsel, make certain that they are not a KU Law grad or prof. since apparently they are either - A) Completely incompetent since they couldn't get this "victim" cleared of these trumped up charges or B) Completely naive because they believed the line of crap being fed to them by a convicted murderer and tried (unsuccessfully) to get his conviction overturned.

My husband and Mike's brother broke the gun in 1994 by backing over it with a tractor. So right there is a major discrepancy on the part of the prosecution. HELLO... why is it that my husband and mikes brother weren't called as witnesses???

February 3, 2011 at 8:24 p.m. permalinkreplysuggest removal

countrygal07 (anonymous) says… The gun the police have as the murder weapon was broke and never repaired many years before this murder took place.

So, the murder was in 1993, the gun was broken in 1994, but the gun was broken many years before the murder. Am I missing something? I thought 1993 was before 1994, but maybe not. You know, I could be wrong and not able to make any informed decision based on common knowledge because I have let my biases get in the way.

Mean_Green 4 years, 1 month ago

I hope they had the necessary 1.21 jigawatts each time they traveled.

I believe the point is that somewhere in this case the prosecution said that Mike broke the gun during the crime. Whether it was before or after 1993, the gun was not broke during the crime. My husband and the defendants brother broke the gun with a tractor. All of the so called facts that the prosecution introduced into this case do not add up. its easy at 1+1=2. but the prosecution is coming up with 1+1=4

garyr 4 years, 1 month ago

And, redneckmomma4, just how did the gun get broken by a tractor? Did the tractor run the gun over in a field after the gund was ditched by the suspect? Or was it some type of freak accident? I sure would like to know.

So, the suspects father / stepfather and brother / stepbrother broke the gun with the tractor? Could this have possibly been to hide evidence?

imastinker 4 years, 1 month ago

It sounds to me like the prosecution did you a favor for not prosecuting you idiots for what appears to be a purposeful destruction of evidence - according to you.

How do you break a gun with a tractor anyway? I've got lots of experience with both guns and tractors and never managed to do that one.

No your honor the gun I shot Shipley with did not have a broken stock, so am I free?

Opps, my bad.

crazybrother 4 years, 1 month ago

No, your just to slow to pay attention, or to complex for your little narrow mind! The prosecution said he was shot with a 22 caql. rifle that had a broken stock! their keywitness testified to that! Problem is, the alledged murder occured in 1993 and the stock of the 22 rifle did not get broken untill 1994. the states keywitnes wouldn not have known the rifle was broken because he testified that he had not seen the gun since the alledged murder! So, lets see if you can do the math now that i spelled it out for you! It's called coaching a witness!!! Because they had know case! And BTW allowing the jury to converse with the general public about the trial during the trial and deliberations is not permitted in any court of law! It is not permitted to have people on the jury that have or have had any personal relationship with the defendant! All of these points were brought to the attention of the court and the great court system of jefferson county did not care! And the judge that presided over the trial is also Jewish. Judge Gary Natfzinger of jefferson county> Now if this case was on the level and the defendant was actually part of the kkk, dont you think the judge could be a little prejudice? It would be like asking Sadaam Hussein to preside over a case against George W. Bush! So unless you know all of the facts, shutup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

garyr 4 years, 1 month ago

A Jewish judge? NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Not a Jewish judge! Who cares what nationality the judge was? It's the jury that sent your son / brother / uncle / grandpa / neighbor / ex boyfriend / baby daddy to prison. It wasn't the Jewish judge. Since the defendent was a member of the KKK, he's probably lucky the judge was not African American, he only had to deal with the "Jewish Judge".

The state isn't the one that has to call witnesses FOR mike, they are there to call witnesses AGAINST him. mike and his legal representative should be calling witnesses for him.

And by gosh he's had a little bit of trouble adjusting to the demands of prison life so big deal he got busted with about a dozen infractions once in the prison system. Leave the guy alone cuz he has been proven to be innocent of his crimes...and why?? Because his family says so that's why! I can't believe your ignorance of not taking their word for it that this is a fine man who mistakingly chose to associate with the wrong people!

"A locul boy who dun tied himself to an original Klan group who wuz only tryin to pick up da ladys and also sumhow got wrongfully convicted in 96 of a Jeff County murder faces a paroll hearin’ in March.

Even if Michael “Da Inforcer” Wilkins, 39, is granted paroll for him in da furst-degree murder convicshun in da 93 shootin” deth of 25-year-old David Shipley, Wilkins still faces sum 11 years of prisin time for convicshuns of conspirsy and aggravated robury in the case, so dem court records dun say.

A vindiktiv judge herd the verdic and dun ordered Wilkins to serve his ol sentences one rite after dem other, not nowin he had sum granbabys on da way. Da Kansas (kanguroo) Supreme Court in 99 threw out dat boys convictshun for a count of conspirsy to commit robbury sayin’ his axe wur part of one conspirsy to kill and rob dat ol boy Wilkins.

Thorities also allege Wilkins took a purty necklase from Shipley.

“In brief, Wilkins’ 96 convictshun involved murder, sex, drugs, and the KKK,” wrote Justice Carol Beier in a decision on a 07 appeal in the case.

Dem biased news reports and court records said Wilkins, a model inmate at the Lansing Correctional Facility, was known as an “inforcer” for dat der ol Klan group that originated in Davenport, Iowa, but had recruted members, including dem purty yung ones, in Lowrents.

Wilkins dun shot dat ol boy Shipley, a fellow arien, in da hed wit a .22. Prosecutors said the killin wuz based on an order from the der fuhrer, Mike Bittle, who eventually reached a plee deal wit dem crooked prosecutors and testifyed against Wilkins.

Cordin’ to the department of currections, Bittle served ate years in prisin for a conspirsy convictshun and died in 08 while he wus on paroll.

Thorities blived Bittle and Shipley had differunces over trix and skrilla from the sellin of choppers. Witnesses said Shipley wuz gonna snitch to tell dem dang ol popo bout Bittle’s sweet leaf operation. Shipley’s bonez wuz planted by dem crooked keystone cops in a rural pond on property owned by dem der Wilkins’ famly in SE Jeff County.

The department of correctshuns is accepting comments from the publik on Wilkins’ furst-degree murder convictshun. His hearin’ will be in March befor the paroll bored makes a decishun in April.

Send dem comments to the currections website, www.dc.state.ks.us. Dat website also has sum forms that can be filld out and mailed to dat dang ol paroll board."

You should be ashamed of yourselves. Making such rude comments about Mike and his family. So what if they misspell something. Noone is perfect. I am happy to see his family standing beside him thru all this. Mike is innocent and it doesnt matter what any of you think. My honest opinion is all of you are drama queens that dont have anything else to do but sit in front of the computer all day and blow your mouth. I could only imagine the drama in your families. Go ahead bookmark the parole hearing. It only proves my point of you all being drama queens. I wish the best for the Wilkins.

RoeDapple 4 years, 1 month ago

From wisegeek.com

"Drama Queen" "Conflicts and disappointments are natural side effects of the human experience, but for a certain personality type known as a "drama queen," life's little setbacks can trigger explosive emotional outbursts and other irrational behaviors. The term "drama queen," or less frequently, "drama king" is usually applied to someone with a demanding or overbearing personality who tends to overreact to seemingly minor incidents. A drama queen often views the world in absolutes, and only has two settings on her emotional control button; zero and ten. Psychologists might describe a drama queen or king as a neurotic personality with histrionic tendencies, meaning they tend to become needlessly dramatic whenever order is disrupted."

I would say this describes most of the family and friends here defending the murderer Wilkins. With all the conflicting 'non-evidence' you all try to present on his behalf it is no wonder he is in prison, guilty or not. You think you are helping him by coming here and bleating out your mindless drivel? Ha! Prosecutors love to get their hands on your incriminating blather. Kiss his sorry a$$ goodbye, you've probably sealed his fate.

LadyJ 4 years, 1 month ago

countrygal, I would be more upset and worried if people didn't get worked up about murder. It tells me that society still cares about man's inhumanity to man. Yes I bet Mike and his family and friends prefer we didn't care about what happened.

countrygal07 4 years, 1 month ago

RoeDapple- I know the definition of a drama queen. Im not illiterate. Seems everytime one of the family members say something you find need to bash them. Its uncalled for let alone very childish. You also seem to be a very negative person that Im blessed not to know. Didnt your mother teach you to shut your mouth if nothing nice was going to come out of it? Seems on every posting jworld puts out you put nasty hateful comments on it. Maybe jworld should kick you off the site. Its evident your daddy didnt spank your a$$ enough when you was a child. Mike is innocent and his family is explaining what evidence they didnt share with the community. I dont feel the Wilkins need to explain themselves to you of all people. You have a negative outlook on life and I really think you need to get a job or even admit yourself for treatment for depression and mental evaluation. You have many issues. Hope you dont have any children and hope none of your children get in trouble cause I will find them guilty on your actions alone. Get a life jerk
