Former Model Sentenced for the Murder of Psychiatrist

A former Playboy and Maxim model was sentenced to 10 to 25 years in Nevada state prison on Tuesday over her role in the death of a California doctor found stuffed in the trunk of a car near Las Vegas.

Kelsey Turner, 29, entered an Alford plea in November of last year, one of the defendant’s representatives previously told Law&Crime. At the time, Turner was aware of the sentence she faced and agreed to enter the plea one one charge of murder in the second degree in exchange for guaranteed parole eligibility after 10 years behind bars.
