Delia Wilson was a madam catering to the rich and powerful of New York City. As a result, she made a lot of powerful friends.
Delia is a farmer who eventually married a man, had three kids with him, and eventually founded a matchmaking service that doubled as a prostitution ring. She eventually extorted various politicians and officers of the law to work for her and successfully ran her business for ten years with the help of her attorney Marvin Exley. When another pimp named Bart Ganzel came into town and started running better girls, even stealing some of Delia's top girls, she ordered Paula Foster to run an investigation into him and had some goons intimidate him into backing off. Despite these personal attacks, Bart continued running his business.
On her orders, Delia tricked Paula Foster into working for her and keeping an eye on a new pimp in town named Bart. When Bart started stealing her girls like Carissa Gibson, Delia's top girl, she plotted to take down Bart. When Bart organized female entertainment for Clayton Hannigan, she had one of her girls named Anya Solar pretend to switch sides and brought along Maggie Murphy to work at the party. Anya then poisoned Maggie with scopolamine and left her in a bedroom to die.
Delia was later arrested for the murder when her booker came forward as a witness to the murder and well as other crimes. Delia then hatched a plan to drop all the charges by having Paula Foster set her free through murder, lies, and manipulations. She started by having Iris and Anya murdered so there are no witnesses to incriminate her. Later, Delia fired Exley and represented herself in her case, and framed Cragen for raping several of her girls just after the murder charge against him was dismissed.
All of this would later unravel when Foster revealed her role in everything and as a result, Delia is arrested for multiple counts of racketeering and first-degree murder. As a result, the NY Attorney General was arrested for promoting prostitution, solicitation, and accepting bribes. In addition to him, three district attorneys, Paula Foster, seven members of NYPD's vice squad, two state senators, and two deputy mayors were also arrested.
The following were killed on her orders
- Maggie Murphy (poisoned with scopolamine by Anya Solar)
- Iris Peterson (wrists were slashed and staged it to look like a suicide)
- Anya Solar (brakes were cut to stage it as a car accident)
