Twenty-six-year-old Amanda Taylor stabbed her father-in-law to death and has no remorse. She told investigators that it “made her really happy” to take 59-year-old Charles Taylor’s life. Although the details of his murder are particularly chilling, perhaps the most disturbing part of the story is what cops found in the background of a selfie Amanda snapped moments after committing her heinous crime.
When Amanda’s husband, Rex Taylor, took his own life, she became convinced that it was all his father Charles’ fault. He had introduced Rex to drugs as a teen, she claimed, and it became an addiction he struggled with for the rest of his life. Ultimately, Rex decided to end it all in August 2014, leaving Amanda behind. Unable to bear the pain of losing her husband, Amanda decided to take her anger out on Charles.
The 26-year-old stabbed her 59-year-old father-in-law repeatedly in his Virginia home. “I just wanted him to feel the pain I felt. That’s the most alive I’ve felt since Rex died,” she told Crime Watch Daily. “I was very happy, I was very happy just to finally get all that built-up hate and anger and all those feelings out on him.”
After killing Charles, Amanda could think of nothing better to do than whip out her cell phone and snap a selfie with the victim and murder weapon in plain view.
“I was just really excited and I was like, ‘Hey I’m gonna take a picture so I can post it and show everyone.’ It was just something that I, it made me really happy,” she said.
Taylor and her husband Rex reportedly had an ‘obsession’ with murderers.

“When I stabbed him I didn’t see anything and he just looked at me and he was like, ‘What are you doing?’ and as I was stabbing him, he had reached up and got my hair,” recalled Amanda. “I continued to stab him but he kept yelling and it made me nervous so Sean took the crowbar, the tire iron or whatever, and hit him in the back of the head.”
Amanda has been sentenced to life in prison for the horrific murder of her father-in-law, but still, she has no remorse for the gruesome crime. “I have absolutely no remorse for what I did to Charlie Taylor at all,” she said. “I did exactly what I wanted to do.”
Amanda Taylor is truly a sick-minded individual and the only place for her is behind bars. There’s no telling who else she might harm on a whim if allowed to roam the streets. Anyone who can stab another human being to death and then smile for a selfie is a bonafide sociopath.
