  • A Clark County, Nevada, judge on Tuesday sentenced former Playboy model Kelsey Turner to serve 10 to 25 years in prison for her role in the 2019 killing of California psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Burchard.
  • Turner, 29, agreed in November to an Alford plea, which maintains the defendant’s innocence despite prosecutorial evidence that would likely result in a guilty verdict if presented before a jury.
  • Turner and her then-boyfriend, 29-year-old Jon Logan Kennison, were arrested in 2019 after authorities found Burchard’s body stuffed in the trunk of an abandoned car on State Route 147 near Lake Mead outside Las Vegas on March 7 of that year.
