Over 11 murders of pizza peddler was sentenced to death

July 11 2007

The Court of Los Angeles has sentenced 40-year old Chester Turner to death for the murder of ten women and one unborn child.

"I do not think any jury would arrive at a different verdict," - told Judge William Pounders. Turner's lawyers have already filed an appeal against the decision of the court. In the case of satisfying the death penalty could be commuted to life imprisonment without parole. Turner, who before his arrest worked for a pizza peddler, was found guilty in murder of 30 April. He is currently serving an eight-year sentence for raping a woman, committed in 2002.

During the investigation of this case Turner took a DNA sample, which coincided with what appeared in a series of murders that occurred in Los Angeles from 1987 to 1998. One of his victims was pregnant. According to prosecutors, Turner is the most brutal serial killer in the history of Los Angeles. He chose his victims among prostitutes and drug addicts who lived in the south of the city, deprived areas.

Turner is suspected in four murders, but so far the charges on them are not charged. In three out of four of the murders 11 years has served David Allen - janitor with mental disabilities, which in 2004 was released and received $ 750 thousand as compensation. DNA analysis showed his innocence. Informs RIA Novosti news agency.
