His trial was previously rescheduled for Oct. 26 due to new evidence being discovered. The original trial date was supposed to begin in September.

Turner’s one-time co-defendant, Sherra Wright, Lorenzen’s ex-wife, pleaded guilty to facilitation to murder in July. It’s not known yet if she will testify.

Impact of Sherra Wright's plea deal

Sherra Wright and Turner were both charged with Lorenzen Wright’s 2010 murder in 2017.

Turner’s new trial date has not been scheduled.
