MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Corey Taylor, 21, appeared in court Monday after he was arrested Friday in connection the crimes at Galilee Memorial Gardens. Taylor is charged with theft of property and abuse of a corpse.

In a detailed affidavit, investigators say Taylor used a computer in the cemetery office to produce a list that showed three to four bodies were buried in one grave.

The report suggests he even served as a witness, noting that "Taylor was also present when Robert Savage aka "Juicy" crushed caskets with the wheel of a backhoe in effort to make room for multiple caskets."

The state ordered Galilee to stop burials in 2011, but according to the class action lawsuit, the cemetery continued business as usual.

The owner of the cemetery, Jemar Lambert, is in jail with no bond

Deborah King buried her sister a few years ago at Galilee Memorial Gardens. News of a second arrest in the case against Lambert moved her to tears.

"For you to entrust somebody with your loved ones, even though they're dead," said King. "The world is so messed up. All they think about is money, they don't think about all the love you have for this person, and how much you want them to be taken care of."

As details continue to unfold, King and hundreds of other families continue to hope for justice.

"It's a crime against humanity to me. Even though they are dead," said King. "For him to go to jail for a long long, time. A pay restitution for the people that he hurt."

Taylor is out on bond. His next court appearance is set for April 15.
