McDonnell passes clemency petition to successor
Friday - 1/10/2014, 6:40pm EST
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A clemency petition for a former Navy SEAL trainee imprisoned for the 1995 slaying of a vacationing Georgia college student is being passed along to Virginia's next governor.
Gov. Bob McDonnell's spokeswoman says he has asked the Virginia Parole Board to investigate claims made in Dustin Turner's petition. The board would then make a recommendation to Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe, who takes office Saturday.
Turner, of Bloomington, Ind., is serving an 82-year prison sentence for the slaying of 21-year-old Jennifer Evans outside a Virginia Beach bar. Another former SEAL trainee, Billy Joe Brown of Dayton, Ohio, also was convicted in a separate trial and is serving 72 years. Brown originally blamed Turner for the killing, but he changed his story in 2003 and testified that he alone choked Evans to death.
