January 12, 2012

WOONSOCKET — The state Supreme Court Thursday affirmed the conviction of Gilbert Delestre in connection with the brutal beating death of his 3-year-old foster child, Thomas “T.J.” Wright, in 2004.
Delestre and his girlfriend, Katherine Bunnell, the child’s foster mother and aunt, were both convicted of murder and conspiracy for their role in the boy’s killing after separate trials in 2008.
Witnesses testified Delestre hurled the toddler across a room, then knocked him down a flight of stairs with a backhander, causing the boy to lapse into unconsciousness.
