According to a criminal complaint, Harrison Grant Taylor, 18, of Barboursville, was interviewed at the school Friday and showed authorities his list but said he never intended to follow through on it.

Taylor’s cellphone also allegedly included threatening letters directed to at least one fellow student.

Taylor was charged with six counts of stalking and one count of making terroristic threats. He’s being held in the Western Regional Jail on $50,000 bail.

Taylor is the second student this month in West Virginia schools to be charged in connection with a kill list.

Police in Mingo County charged Kenneth Wood, 18, of Lenore, a student at Tug Valley High School, with allegedly committing a similar crime two weeks ago.
