Texas Man Arrested for Killing Girlfriend, Posting Photo of Her Body on Facebook
A Texas man is in jail after allegedly stabbing and killing his girlfriend, then posting a photo of her dead body on Facebook.
According to WFAA, Kenneth Alan Amyx (45) posted two photos from the crime scene Sunday: One of 43-year-old Jennifer Spears' body, and another of himself covered in blood. A caption on the photos read: "Please pray for us." The pictures were posted to the victim's Facebook page.
Police officers responding to a call from the victim's sister found Spears' body when they arrived at her apartment. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Amyx was taken to a hospital to treat "superficial wounds" police believe were self-inflicted.
Upon release, Amyx was arrested for murder and transported to the Collin County Detention Center. His bail was set at $200,000.
Plano Police Department Spokesman David Tilley said the Facebook post is being held as evidence.
