Judge refuses to suppress suspect’s statement to police

Jurors will be able to hear Courtney Taylor’s nearly 90-minute statement to police from her hospital bed in part explaining why she killed her husband and her two daughters. Courtney Taylor is charged with three counts of capital murder in the Jan. 13, 2017, killings of her husband and two teenage daughters. Part of the reason she killed her husband was that she blamed him in part for going through most of her more than $250,000 worker’s compensation settlement in a few months although the money was in an account in her name only, according to a portion of her statement to police that was played in open court during a July hearing. Special Judge Jeffrey Burdette recently issued an order overruling a request by defense attorneys to have that statement suppressed as evidence.
