Harford man draws life for murder of soldier


A Harford County man was sentenced yesterday to life in prison without parole for the murder of an Army clerk who was kidnapped in March and stabbed to death in a wooded area near the Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The same Baltimore County Circuit jury that convicted Daniel E. Turner last month in the death of Spec. 4 Bonnie Sue Joseph, 21,apparently heeded his pleas to spare his life but decided he should not be allowed ever to leave prison.

Turner hung his head and wept as the jury foreman read the verdict. Earlier, Turner told the jury that he tried all his life to "do the right thing but always failed."
