(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his girlfriend and uploading pictures of her dead body on Facebook, according to police in Texas.

Plano police arrested 45-year-old Kenneth Alan Amyx, after being accused of slashing the throat of his girlfriend, 43-year-old Jennifer Streit-Spears, before taking photos of her dead body.

Amyx was charged with one count of murder and one count of sexual abuse of a child. He was booked into the Collin County Jail, where he is being held on $600,000 bail.

Police said that officers responded to a call about a disturbance at 2300 Kathryn Lane on Sunday, after being called by the victim’s sister who saw the pictures on Facebook.

Officers forced themselves into the apartment, where they found Streit-Spears stabbed to death and Amyx with stab wounds that appeared to have been self inflicted.

According to the police investigation, Amyx sexually abused a child before taking a knife and slitting the throat of his girlfriend.

He then took selfies with the dead body and uploaded them on Facebook. It took Facebook 36 hours to remove the photos.
