Killer files supreme court appeal

A man convicted of shooting his estranged wife six times at an intersection has filed an appeal of his murder conviction to the Georgia Supreme Court. The case is set for oral argument before the court on Monday, June 14. Michael James Turner was convicted of ambushing Teresa Buckner Turner at the intersection of Rehoboth Church and Old McDonough roads in Spalding County. The victim died at the scene. The couple lived on Atlanta Street in Barnesville. Turner told investigators he did not remember pulling the trigger though he fired at least six rounds. Michael Turner’s attorney is contesting the fact that the jury in the case was allowed to hear the shooter’s taped confession.
