Turenne Maximum Sentence

Monique Turenne Sentenced

A Florida judge gave Monique Turenne of Winnipeg, Canada the maximum sentence Tuesday for second-degree murder in the death of her husband.

Turenne was convicted of helping her lover fatally beat her husband with a claw hammer more than nine-years ago in Panama City.

Prosecutors say she manipulated retired U. S. Air Force Master Sergeant Ralph Crompton into killing her husband.

A judge sentenced her to 260 months - or 21 years and eight months, the maximum sentence under guidelines from 1996 when her husband was killed.

Members of David Turenne’s family, who traveled to Florida from Manitoba for the sentencing, were pleased with the outcome.
