Turner gets 19 prison years in two Liberty killings

WARREN

Melvin L. Turner was sentenced to 19 years in prison today in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court for the killing of Wineice Green and her 13-year-old daughter Ja-Brajasia in their Northgate Drive, Liberty Township, home in 2009.

Turner, 38, pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, one count of aggravated burglary, one of tampering with evidence and one of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

He is one of five people convicted in the case.

Wow, only 19 years for killing two people?!?! How does someone like this not get the death penalty? Bigger consequences for violent crimes are needed here! Sentencing needs to be more expedient as well.

I'm not sure how it was "involuntary." Not sure about anyone else, but I don't involuntarily go around shooting people.

Actually its probably 3 years for the firearm. year or two for the burglary and tampering, so its the average sentence for taking a human life in the valley, 6 years or so per life. That's why Gains needs to go.

This happened in Warren (Trumbull County) so it has nothing at all to do with Paul Gains.... He is a Mahoning County prosecutor.

Also to all
I am sure the sentence was reached in some sort of plea deal. These things look terrible on the surface, but if the prosecutor is not confident in the evidence in the case it is better to make the deal than to see the suspect go totally free.
