Taylor guilty of second degree murder

It only took a BC Supreme Court Jury in Kamloops five hours to convict a Terrace man charged with the murder of his 16-year-old girlfriend.
Twenty-four-year old Damien Taylor was found guilty of second degree murder in the death of CJ Fowler.
Court heard during more than two weeks of trial that Taylor and Fowler, originally from the Gitanmaax Band, had travelled to Terrace from Kamloops to sell drugs and had used crystal meth in the week leading up to the December, 2012 murder.
Fowler was treated in hospital for chest pains related to drug use where tests revealed she was pregnant with Taylor’s child.
The couple was seen arguing as they left hospital and Fowler’s body was discovered by dog walkers hours later in a Kamloops.
Taylor testified that he and Fowler went to a nearby park, but that he blacked out and then panicked when awoke to find her body.
Second degree murder carries a life sentence, but a judge will determine Taylor’s parole eligibility at a later date.
