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.
"The fact that Brown now confesses that he acted alone in restraining and choking Evans does not absolve Turner of his guilt," Justice Donald Lemons wrote.
Justice Lemons noted that Brown had given several conflicting accounts of the slaying, including two signed affidavits that differed in how Miss Evans died.
