At the time the pair had engaged in a heated argument outside of Mitchell’s home in Bloomfield, CT. Mitchell claims that when he tried to break up with the 27 year old Ronald Taylor Jr, Taylor posted material on Facebook that revealed him as being in a gay relationship. Mitchell in turn told police that Taylor had become jealous of the football player’s texts with women.
Taylor allegedly showed up at Mitchell’s home uninvited on Thursday night. The police believe that Taylor had punched Mitchell in the face before Mitchell began stabbing Taylor. When Taylor began running away, Mitchell chased after him and stabbed him twice more.
