Chester Dewayne Turner is a convicted serial killer. On April 30, 2007, he was convicted of the murders of 10 women in Los Angeles, and was also found guilty in the death of the unborn child of one of his victims. Chester DeWayne Turner was sentenced to death in 2007 for the murder of 10 women between 1987 and 1998 in South Los Angeles. Authorities believe he was tied to another nine killings. DNA samples of semen and other bodily fluids taken from each victim matched Turner's genetic profile.

Prosecutors described Turner, a onetime pizza delivery man, as a savage predator fixated on violence, dominance and control, from which he derived sexual satisfaction. He would rape and strangle his victims, then dump their bodies.

The killings mostly took place in the 30-block stretch of motels and apartments that runs south from Slauson Avenue along Figueroa Street -- an area notorious for prostitution, drug crime and violence.

During the span in which the murders occurred, Turner moved often, bouncing between prison, skid row missions, girlfriends' apartments and the home of his mother and grandfather, a few blocks from Figueroa in South L.A.

On Feb. 1, 2011, prosecutors charged Turner with four additional murders linked to him through DNA.

Turner, a Locke High School dropout born in Arkansas, had been in and out of prison for years on various convictions, including theft, drug possession and rape.

He joins the roster of Los Angeles' most prolific serial killers, including Charles Manson, "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez and "Freeway Killer" William Bonin.
