This is such a heartbreaking situation. I have known Mark most of his life, and this is just not right. She needs to be put away Forever. What about the death penalty, for taking away someone's life. My condolences to his family. Several years ago he was telling me of this woman who was showing up at his office, stalking him and he could not get rid of her. He described her a mexican. Now this ! I am so Sorry to hear of this tragedy. She is a murderer and hopefully she will be put away forever. Greiving, I am.

I googled Virginia turner. Someone has filed a restraining order on her. It says all the crazy things she did to another man. "threatening to kill him.". Taking his keys & going into his home. Stealing thousands on dollars. Throwing out his clothes. Poor Mark must have been thru such antics with her. Then she murders him

My husband dated her (before me of course) and she did all the crazy things listed including threatening his ex-wife. My husband dodged a bullet. My heart goes out to Marks family.

I hope Verginia gets life. The bible says an eye for an eye. That predator knew he was a sucker the moment she layed eyes on him. He was generous with his time and resources to help those who were less fortunate. He was a dedicated father and loved by all who knew him. Mark was a colorful personality and enjoyed making people laugh. He will always be missed by his 5 boys and grandsons.
It's like being robbed having him taken away. Mark always said he would have to move out of town and thertefore, put off ending her for many years.

To Laura and Angelina:

The trial is going on now. It started 11/26/12 and is expected to go around 2 weeks. If you want to follow the court schedule then here is the link directly to this hearing. https://www.justicepartners.monterey.courts.c...
If that link doesn't work the go to the Monterey County Court's website at then go to Online Services, Index Search and enter her last name and first name and her complete history will come up (If you want to only enter in part of her first name ie: Ver then just make sure to put % at the end ie: Ver%). This is case #SS102063A.

Mark never put his hands on anyone. Funniest human I have ever met. Hope this piece of garbage rots in her cell until she goes to hell. I think about one of my favorite humans every day. Gone way too early. Wish we were hitting some tennis balls. Rest easy Mark!
