5-19-20 turner back in fdl court two days before halloween

The so-called “Halloween Killer”  Gerald Turner will return to Fond du Lac County for a court appearance, two days before the 47th anniversary of when he killed Lisa Ann French in Fond du lac.  Turner was convicted and spent time in prison for the 1973 rape and murder of  French who went trick or treating that evening in Turner’s neighborhood.  The state argues that Turner is a sexually violent person and suffers from mental disorders.   Fond du Lac judge Robert Wirtz will hear oral arguments October 29 to decide whether Turner should be set free or committed to a mental health facility for the rest of his life.
