Gay High School Football Captain Accused Of Murdering His Older Male Lover
Tarence Mitchell, an 18-year-old Connecticut high school football captain has been accused of stabbing his 27-year-old lover Ronald Taylor, Jr. to death after unsuccessfully trying to end their relationship.
Court papers revealed Mitchell admitted to police that Taylor gave him pot and alcohol over the past two years, and that they had a sexual relationship, but when Mitchell tried to end it at the end of last year, "Taylor posted a picture of him on Facebook that included a blog of bad things about him, including him being a Bloomfield gay football star," the court documents said.
Mitchell also told investigators that Taylor threatened to report the photo, that Taylor would have outbursts and get jealous when he texted girls, and earlier this week even threatened him with a sword.
On Thursday, court documents said Taylor texted Mitchell inviting himself over, then announcing it wasn't going to end well. Mitchell, police said, felt threatened and put a knife in his pants pocket so he could defend himself if Taylor did anything outrageous.
The documents said that after Taylor hit him in the face, he stabbed him three times in Taylor's car before he started running and Mitchell chased him.
