Man Who Listened To SLIPKNOT Before Committing Murder To Be Sentenced This Month

August 15, 2008

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.
