Craig Wilson is a Character in Season Two of Showtime's series DEXTER.

He is an initial suspect in the murder of his step-daughter, Betsy Court.

History

At an unknown point, Craig marries a woman who has a teenage daughter, Betsy Court. Craig and Betsy do not get along and have constant yelling matches.

After another huge fight with Betsy, Craig arrives home for lunch to the sight of his step-daughter's body lying near the pool. He tries to revive her, but to no avail. He then calls the police.

Summary

The police and forensics arrive at Betsy's crime scene. Craig has blood on his shirt and appears very distressed over Betsy's death.

Sergeant James Doakes initially suspects Craig for her murder due to his history of anger toward her. His suspicion is reinforced when Forensic Blood Spatter Analyst Dexter Morgan tells him that the blood mist on Craig's shirt is from a bludgeoning.

Doakes arrests Craig and intensely interrogates him at the station. Craig tearfully professes his innocence, but Doakes doesn't believe him. When Dexter's blood report proves that Craig is blameless, Lieutenant Maria LaGuerta interrupts the interrogation. She frees Craig, and chews out Doakes. Doakes is furious, realizing that Dexter set him up to make a fool of himself.
