Convicted antifreeze killer dies in Ga. prison

ATLANTA (AP) - A woman who killed her husband and later her boyfriend by poisoning them with antifreeze has died in an Atlanta prison.

Georgia Department of Correction spokeswoman Sharmelle Brooks says 42-year-old Lynn Turner was found unresponsive in her cell Monday morning and could not be revived.

Brooks says she doesn't know how Turner died. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation's medical examiner's office is looking into it.

The former 911 operator was sentenced to life without parole in 2007 after a jury found her guilty in the 2001 killing of her boyfriend, firefighter Randy Thompson.

Turner was already serving a life sentence for the 1995 death of her husband, police officer Glenn Turner. She had maintained her innocence.
