Trial date set in CarQuest murder case
BATON ROUGE - A state judge has set an Oct. 28 trial date for a man accused of fatally shooting two employees of a CarQuest Auto Parts store in March 2011.
The District Attorney's Office is seeking the death penalty against 23-year-old Lee Turner Jr., who was hired by the company less than two weeks before the killings and worked at other CarQuest locations.
Turner is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Edward Gurtner III and Randy Chaney.
Authorities say they were killed during a robbery.
