Lynn Turner (born Julia Lynn Womack on July 13, 1968) is an American convicted murderer. She was convicted on March 24, 2007 for the second of two murders she committed by poisoning her victims with antifreeze. Her second trial lasted for twelve days.[1] Before her arrest, she worked as a 911 operator.

Murders

In 1995, Turner, then 25, murdered her husband, Cobb County, Georgia police officer Maurice Glenn Turner, age 31.[2] Turner went to the emergency room on March 2, 1995, complaining of flu-like symptoms.[2] He was treated there and when he felt better, he went home.[2] The next day, he was found dead when Lynn came home.[2] On January 22, 2001, she killed her boyfriend, Forsyth County firefighter Randy Thompson, age 32. She had been having an affair with Thompson at the time of her husband's murder.[2] Thompson reported to the emergency room complaining of a stomach ache and constant vomiting.[2] He was treated and released on January 21. She made him some Jell-O.[2] By the next day, he was dead. She collected around $153,000 in death benefits for her husband's death and $36,000 in her boyfriend's death.[2][3]

According to a Georgia department website, Turner is currently serving a life sentence at Metro State Prison. She faced the death penalty for the 2001 murder of Randy Thompson but she was instead sentenced to life in prison without parole.
