Turner Jury Deadlocked
A second Stone County jury was unable to reach a verdict in the retrial of Lewis Wayne Turner and Rickey Turner last week in circuit court.
The father and son were both charged with manufacture of marijuana in excess of 100 pounds and possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use (farm machinery and equipment), in connection with a raid on Wayne Turner’s property in 2011.
