Man Said He Feared Being Stuck With Slain Wife Forever

Jurors in El Cajon have watched a videotaped interview in which a Ramona man told police he killed his wife because he feared he would be forever "stuck with her."

In the interview, Keith Harold Turner said "I was scared she would just not go away." Sheriff's Detective Angela Tsuida testified that after admitting the crime, Turner showed sheriff's deputies where he buried Toby Turner's body at the side of his home in the Ramona Estates development.

Turner is charged with murder for strangling his wife after the two argued in September 2005.

A defense attorney suggested Turner wasn't guilty of murder because he was pushed to the breaking point by a wife who was mentally ill, often drugged out on methamphetamine and living off-and-on with another man.
