Judge Holds Turner on 2 Class B Felonies and $20,000 Cash Bond

May 12, 2013


  05/13/13  On Friday, May 10th Superior Court II Judge Dean Colvin found that probable cause does exist for the charges of aggravated battery as a class B felony and child neglect as a B felony against 18 year old Rickey Diana S. Turner.   Judge Colvin imposed a bond in the amount of $20,000 cash.

Turner has been housed in the Marshall County Jail since Thursday for allegedly hurting her one month old baby that morning. 

The Plymouth Police Department received a 9-1-1 call at approximately 8:47 a.m. Thursday from the 200 block of East Lake Street for a baby that was not breathing normally. 

Detective Leo Mangus with the Plymouth Police Department began an investigation.  Diana Turner showed the bedroom where the incident took place and told the officer that about 6:30 a.m., shortly after the baby’s father had left for work she “had placed her hand over the baby’s mouth and nose and held it until her had turned blue.”  She told him that the baby wasn’t breathing properly, however she did nothing until approximately 8:30 a.m. when she told her mother, who lives in the home too.  Diana Turner told Officer Mangus that the baby had been screaming in the last week and “she could not deal with his screaming.”  Turner continued saying, “she would normally contact her mother when she could not deal with the baby, but she had lost control and hurt the baby.” 

The one month old male infant was taken to Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth and then transferred to Memorial Hospital in South Bend where the extent of his injuries were not known a the time of the interview.

    Yeah, I agree, it’s too bad they let illegal drug manufacturers out at any price.

    I notice you used the phrase “gets blamed for” as opposed to: my brother builds a meth lab and…

    Do you think it just spontaneously generated in his possession? Or do you think just destroying strangers lives is okay, of just those of your druggie addicted ‘friends’?

    The likely hood of this 18yr old with an already destroyed life coming up with 20k is probably lower than your bro coming up with 100k from his ill gotten gains.

    I don’t see an evil to choose between here. When given the choice between two evils find a different way. Maybe your brother will stay away long enough to find a life.
