Men Rape, Murdered Pastor's Pregnant Wife - Now They're Facing The Consequences (Photos)

A pregnant woman was home alone waiting for her husband, a pastor, to return. Three men broke in and murdered the pastor's wife, and robbed them. Two of the men have been caught and charged with multiple offenses that could result in a death sentence.

Amanda Blackburn, 28, was 13 weeks pregnant with her second child, in a loving marriage and on top of the world. She had just written a message of faith and gratitude in her journal. Hours later, she was dead.

Blackburn was home alone with the couple's 15-month-old son when Larry Jo Taylor Jr., 18, Jalen Watson, 21, broke in. Blackburn was hit on the head, shot three times, beaten and raped.

Taylor later claimed he shot her when she fought him. He stayed behind while Watson and another accomplice, Diano Gordan, went to try and withdraw money with Blackburn's credit card.

Taylor has been charged with murder, felony burglary, theft, robber, auto theft, carrying a handgun without a license, and several other charges. He's even been slapped with a public nudity charge for exposing himself to a woman in a parking lot months before the attack.

Watson has been charged with murder, felony burglary, theft, robbery, auto theft, and several other charges.

Taylor, Watson and Gordon are believed to have been involved in burglaries at two other homes.

Davey Blackburn is relieved his wife killers have been caught and will face punishment for their crimes. He's grateful that their young son wasn't harmed.
