Judge refuses to block evidence in murder trial

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A state judge has ruled that evidence recovered from the Baton Rouge home of a man now accused of fatally shooting two employees of the CarQuest Auto Parts store in March 2011 can be used at trial.

The evidence - money, Regions Bank bags and CarQuest deposit slips - was seized from the home of Lee Turner Jr. on March 28, 2011, the day after Edward Gurtner III, of Denham Springs, and Randy Chaney, of Greenwell Springs, were gunned down inside the store that Gurtner managed.

Scott Collier, one of Turner's attorneys, said he will ask the state 1st Circuit of Appeal to review state District Judge Richard Anderson's ruling.

Turner is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
