Blaise Taylor, Jade Benning (ABC 2)

Blaise Taylor, a former football star at Arkansas State, has been arrested and charged with fatally poisoning his pregnant girlfriend, Jade Benning, and their unborn child.

In February 2023, Blaise allegedly poisoned Jade “without her knowledge while visiting her Lebanon Pike apartment” in Nashville

Later that night, Jade Benning, who was 5 months pregnant, was rushed to the hospital after Blaise Taylor contacted authorities and told them she appeared to be having “an allergic reaction.” 

The baby died two days later, and tragically, Jade also passed on March 6, 2023, which happened to be her 25th birthday.

Following the death of his girlfriend and baby, Blaise Taylor relocated to Utah. 

In a statement, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said Taylor, 28, was indicted on two charges of first-degree murder in the 2023 deaths of his girlfriend and unborn baby. 

He was arrested on Thursday and is currently held without bail at the Cache County Jail in Logan, Utah.

MNPD is now working with authorities to arrange for Blaise Taylor’s return to Nashville.

At the time of his arrest, Blaise was employed as a football analyst at Utah State.

USU released the following statement: 

We are aware of the arrest of former employee Blaise Taylor, who left the university on March 1, 2024, to begin a new role at another institution.

Taylor had worked as an analyst with the USU football brogan since July 1, 2023.

The university is not involved in this law enforcement matter.
