Grandparents’ killer erupts at sentencing

Melanie Taylor, the mother of Michael Chadd Boysen, breaks down after speaking in court Friday to her son. She recalled the “lovely family dinner” that her parents hosted March 8 after picking up Boysen from prison and then discovering their dead bodies the next day. She said in court that she will “never understand what happened” that day, but told her son that she loves him and forgives him.
