Family seeks justice, closure in death of elderly couple in Augusta

Family seeks justice, closure in death of elderly couple in Augusta


Belinda Baker was working at her home in Virginia when she received a call from her uncle. She didn’t really think much of it and considered not answering since her uncle didn’t call her often. 

She decided to pick up the phone. 

“My uncle says, ‘You need to come home’,” Baker said. 

Her father, Hilton Turner Sr., 75, had been shot and killed at his home on East Hale Street, near Magnolia Cemetery. Baker dropped her phone and began screaming; her husband quickly came to her aid and finished talking to her uncle. 

As Baker was packing a bag to head to Augusta, a second call came. Her mother, Jeannette Turner, 73, had also been shot and killed at the home. They were both pronounced dead at 4 p.m. Feb. 17 inside the residence.
