Man convicted in 7 murders appeals life sentence

Associated Press - December 13, 2010 4:04 AM ET

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A man convicted of being the main triggerman in the slayings of 7 people in their Indianapolis home is appealing his life sentence.

The Indiana Supreme Court will hear Desmond Turner's appeal Thursday.

The 32-year-old Turner was convicted in November 2009 of killing three children and four adults during a home invasion robbery in June 2006. He waived his right to a jury trial in return for prosecutors not seeking the death penalty, and a judge sentenced him to life in prison without parole.

Turner argues that the trial judge erred in admitting certain evidence and that there is insufficient evidence to sustain the convictions.
