A WOMAN and her new lover fantasised about having sex in her millionaire farmer ex’s blood before killing him, a court heard today.
Angela Taylor, 53, and new partner Paul Cannon, 54, allegedly exchanged sick WhatsApp messages about ways to harm 69-year-old William Taylor after he refused to grant her a divorce.
The pair are both accused of murdering Mr Taylor, who went missing days before his 70th birthday last year.
Jurors today heard how the couple had sent graphic messages in the 48 hours before Mr Taylor vanished – with Cannon allegedly telling his lover: “I’ll kill for you darling. Man I get so scared of losing you … I’ll never find anyone like you again and I’ll never want anyone.”
The pair also repeatedly discussed sexual fantasies of showering together as blood ran down the drain, jurors heard.
They also discussed tying Mr Taylor to a chair and making love in front of him.
In one message allegedly sent, Cannon told Taylor: “We need to get together and sort out a plan. We have got to get him out of picture very soon darling.”
And at one point, Cannon told Taylor he was “just watching Kill Bill 2 lol”, to which she replied “1 would be nice” with a series of smiling emojis.
The prosecution also alleged Cannon contacted work colleague and co-defendant Gywn Griffiths to find a hitman, which would cost them £20,000.
The jury heard that William Taylor, who was known as Bill, disappeared on Sunday 3rd June or Monday 4th June from his home Harkness Hall in the village of Gosmore near Hitchin.
His body was found on Sunday 10 February last year by fisherman Eric Jackson in the River Hiz, near Hitchin, just over 2 miles to the north of Harkeness Hall, they heard today.
In police interviews Cannon claimed: “Messages between Angela and me related to no more than fantasy and banter of an extreme nature.”
Taylor also said: “We have sent messages out of frustration. Bill was getting on my nerves.”
Prosecutor John Price QC told the court: “If it really is to be suggested that the conversation was merely an exercise in fantasy, is it then just an unfortunate coincidence that the man whom they say they hated, the man whose death they desired and appeared to plan to bring about in those messages, did in fact vanish off the face of the Earth during the time they were talking about making it happen?”
Taylor and Cannon, both of Hitchin, Hertfordshire, deny murder, arson and an alternative charge of conspiracy to murder.

Griffiths, 60, of Folkestone, Kent, denies murder and the alternative charge of conspiracy to murder.
The court heard Taylor met her husband in 1992, and they married in 1997 and had three children together.
Mr Taylor also had a son, Richard, from a previous marriage and the two sides of the family were said to have “strongly disliked each other” for years, Mr Price told jurors.
The trial continues.
