Official: Man fatally beat girlfriend for suspected cheating
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Pennsylvania man kicked and beat his girlfriend to death because he was convinced she was cheating on him.
KYW-TV reports 53-year-old Mark Turner, of East Pikeland Township, has been charged with the murder of 45-year-old Rachel Yeager.
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan says Turner returned home from a bar on Nov. 1 and began repeatedly punching Yeager, who was sitting on the couch. He’s also accused of kicking her repeatedly with his steel-toed work boots.
Police responding to a report of a domestic disturbance found Yeager unresponsive. She was taken to a hospital and put on life support but was eventually pronounced dead.
Turner is charged with first-degree murder and other related offenses. He was remanded without bail to Chester County Prison.
No attorney information is available.
