The Virginia Supreme Court unanimously refused Friday to exonerate a former Navy SEAL trainee in the abduction and murder of a woman he met at a Virginia Beach nightclub in 1995, ruling that another man's confession that he alone strangled the victim was insufficient to prove Dustin Turner was innocent.
