Sandy was born Aug. 30, 1949 in Carbondale, Ill. to Dr. Paul and Edith Hardy. They moved to Columbus in 1951. After graduating from Columbus High School Sandy attended Texas State University and later earned a bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida. A life-long learner Sandy loved to read and study. She was a licensed esthetician, real estate agent and completed a modeling certificate.

In 1968 Sandy married her high school sweetheart, Jimmy Taylor. They had three children, Ted Alan, Audrey Ann and Jeremy John Taylor. Sandy later married Dennis Biggins and they made their home in Clearwater, Fla. until a recent move to Jacksonville, Fla.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Ted Taylor, accused of killing his mother and stepfather in their Argyle Forest home last year, will remain at a state-run psychiatric facility in the Panhandle.

Doctors have determined that he is still not competent to be prosecuted.

Taylor was arrested in west Texas the day after he was named a person of interest in the January 2007 shooting deaths of 57-year-old Sandra Hardy-Biggins and 58-year-old Dennis Biggins.

Taylor had served 10 years on a Texas conviction for attempted murder before returning to Florida in 2005. His last known address was his parents' home.

Shortly before she was killed, Taylor's mother had voiced concerns to authorities about her son's mental health.

The judge presiding over the case got a letter this week saying Taylor was still unable to assist in his own defense. His mental status will be reviewed again in six months.
