Condemned Killer, Chester Turner, Convicted of Four More Murders
A convicted serial killer, already condemned to death in the murders of 10 women and an unborn child, was found guilty Thursday of four additional slayings.
Chester Dewayne Turner was found guilty Thursday of four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Elandra Bunn, 33, Deborah Williams, 28, Mary Edwards, 42, and Cynthia Annette Johnson, 30, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The former pizza delivery man was sent to death row in 2007 for a string of murders that stretched from 1987 to 1998.
Like the previous 10 victims, the four women in the current case were found strangled to death in South Los Angeles over a 10 year period between 1987 and 1997, the release stated.
The penalty phase of the trial was expected to begin on Friday.
Once again, the 47-year-old will be eligible for the death penalty.
