MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A teen at the center of a crash that killed longtime Auburn broadcaster Rod Bramblett and his wife Paula is now facing child porn charges.

According to Auburn police, Johnston Edward Taylor, 19, has been charged with six counts of possession of child pornography.

Police say Taylor’s arrest stems from an investigation by Auburn police and members of the Alabama Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The investigation, which began on June 7, developed Taylor as a suspect.

During a search warrant, police say evidence related to the case was collected and Taylor was arrested and charged.

Taylor was transported to the Lee County Jail where he is being held on a $60,000 bail.

In 2019, Taylor was charged with two counts of reckless manslaughter following the crash that took the Bramblett’s lives. That case was later settled in juvenile court and the terms of his sentence were not released.
