COLLIN COUNTY JAIL
Kenneth Alan Amyx is being held on a $600,000 bail
The two chilling photos showed victim Jennifer Streit-Spears, 43, and her alleged killer Kenneth Alan Amyx with a caption reading: “please pray for us”. A man has been accused of killing his girlfriend before posting gruesome pictures of the alleged murder on her Facebook page.
Her sister immediately called police after seeing the gory images and tried in vain to have them pulled from Facebook.
She told the Daily Dot : “I did ask them to remove it several times.
“They told me I could block Jennifer if I didn’t like what she posted and gave me other similar options.”

When officers arrived they found Amyx with multiple self-inflicted stab wounds and the body of Streit-Spears nearby.
Facebook initially thought the photos were posted by the victim but they have now been removed.
45-year-old Amyx was also wanted for child sex crimes in Texas when he was arrested by police.
He has now been charged with murder and is being held on a $600,000 bail after being treated for his stab wounds in hospital.

Shocked neighbour Taylor Dunafan said: “I didn’t see them every day. I don’t want to say often, but I mean I never heard anything.
“Anytime you saw people coming out of there, they looked normal, didn’t look angry, didn’t look like murderers or anything.”
