John F. Berry of The Press-Enterprise reports that one of two people who were convicted of luring their friend to his death after listening to SLIPKNOT was sentenced Friday morning (August 29) to 50 years to life in prison.
Jason Lamar Harris (photo), 25, said nothing when he was sentenced in San Bernardino County Superior Court for the late-night stabbing of Terry Ray Taylor, 21, on May 23, 2003.
Harris was also ordered to pay $3,223 in restitution to cover burial costs and grief counseling for Taylor's mother.
A previous prosecutor in the case, Doug Poston, said at a 2004 court hearing that Harris and co-defendant Amber Rose Riley, 21, were listening to a SLIPKNOT CD before and after they killed Taylor at San Bernardino's Perris Hill Park.
They particularly listened to "Disasterpiece", which has lyrics discussing slitting a victim's throat, Poston said.
Riley also admitted watching a horror movie titled "Satan's School for Girls" before the slaying, Poston said.
One motive for the killing was Riley's desire to see a dead body, the prosecutor said.
