Seminole County Grand Jury Issues First-degree Murder

Indictment Against Robert Lester Turner Jr.


            The Seminole County Grand Jury returned a First-degree Felony Murder Indictment against Robert Lester Turner Jr., 20, for the October 17, 2012 death of Brent Roux, 36. The jury also indicted Turner on charges of robbery with a firearm and burglary of a dwelling with an assault or battery.

            Roux was playing video games with a friend when two men came to the home at 1242 Pine St. in unincorporated Seminole County demanding money, jewelry, and drugs. He was shot as he and his friend lay on the floor.

Turner was arrested on March 22 by Seminole County Sheriff’s Investigators and has been held in the Seminole County Jail without bond since then. He is scheduled for an arraignment before Seminole County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester on May 7.

Assistant State Attorney Stacey Salmons said that the Grand Jury heard testimony from a Seminole County Sheriff’s investigator and one lay witnesses before returning the indictment.
