SAN QUENTIN, Calif. — Authorities say a California death row inmate who killed a 9-year-old Oceanside boy has hanged himself in his cell.

State corrections officials tell the San Diego Union-Tribune (http://bit.ly/2jggvtH ) that Brandon Wilson was found dead Thursday at San Quentin State Prison.

The 33-year-old was convicted of slitting the throat of Matthew Cecchi in an Oceanside Harbor restaurant in 1998.

The Oroville boy was in town for a family reunion.

Wilson, a drifter from Wisconsin, said he’d taken LSD and believed God had told him to kill people.

He was captured two days later after stabbing a woman during a robbery in Hollywood. She survived.

At his murder trial, Wilson told jurors he had no remorse and told them to recommend the death penalty or he would kill again.
