One of two people who were convicted of luring their friend to his death after listening to the heavy-metal band SLIPKNOT is scheduled to return to San Bernardino County Superior Court on August 29. According to The Press-Enterprise, Jason Lamar Harris (photo),25, will be sentenced to a 50-year-to-life term in the late-night stabbing of friend Terry Ray Taylor, 21, on May 23, 2003.
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.
