Man Who Hogtied, Murdered Brother Sentenced to Life in Prison
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The man who claims the devil told him to hogtie and shoot his brother after an argument over dirty dishes is sentenced to life in prison, without any possibility of parole.
Calvin Taylor was found guilty in March of first-degree murder in the 2010 north St. Louis County murder of his brother Paul.
According to testimony during the trial, Paul, a Marine and postal worker, had complained about Calvin’s laziness.
Calvin told the jury that before shooting Paul he held him at gunpoint for half-an-hour and told him everything he didn’t like about the way he was treated. He then tied Paul up, complained for another half-hour, then shot him twice in the back.
Calvin fled in Paul’s car. He was arrested in Mississippi for shouting outside a church wearing only boxer shorts.
