When the cops came to East 53rd Street in Long Beach and found an addled Glenda Lee Reymer out front of her house with a knife, they told Bill Taylor and his mother to go inside and leave the matter to professionals. Taylor, 52, didn't have a good feeling about where this was headed, but what could he do? He took his mother May, 86, inside the house, and they watched through the window as his lover of 25 years faced down police.
