Defense testimony begins during Turner murder trial

MOCKSVILLE, N.C. – Defense testimony is now under way in the murder trial of Clemmons dentist Kirk Turner.

He's accused of stabbing his estranged wife Jennifer during an argument in September 2007.

The pathologist who performed the autopsy on Jennifer Turner's body was the state's last witness.

Prosecutors tried to show Turner's wounds were self-inflicted after he killed his wife, bringing out the spear the defense says he was attacked with.
