Man gets 27 years for role in kidnapping

LONGMONT, Colo. — A 73-year-old man who participated in the kidnapping of his grandson has been sentenced by a Colorado judge to 27 years in prison.

The Longmont Times-Call reports Ronald Turner was sentenced Tuesday.

He was convicted in April of kidnapping, assault and other counts for helping his son, Monty Turner, kidnap then-three-year-old Luke Turner (Monty’s son) from his mother’s Longmont home on May 25, 2013.

Monty Turner and the boy were found in Brandon by city police the next day, and Ronald Turner was arrested in Missouri that same evening.

Monty Turner had been staying at the Casa Blanca Motor Inn.

The suspect’s use of a credit card to check in apparently gave away his location, and Brandon police swooped down on the local hotel to make the arrest.

Prosecutors say Monty Turner forced his way into his estranged wife’s home, attacked her with pepper spray and a stun gun and took the boy.

He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges including kidnapping, burglary and violating custody and protection orders.
