A former pizza deliveryman accused of being one of the city's most prolific serial killers was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges of murdering 10 women, two of whom were pregnant.

Superior Court Judge William R. Pounders ruled during a preliminary hearing that there was sufficient cause to believe Chester D. Turner committed the slayings that occurred from 1987 to 1998.

Turner, 38, is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence in an unrelated rape case. Pounders set a Nov. 15 arraignment date.

Turner's DNA was matched to sperm cell evidence from the bodies of all the victims, said Carl Matthies of the police department's scientific investigations division. The likelihood of the genetic profile belonging to someone other than Turner was one in one-quintillion, Matthies said.

This will hit Dave Ramsay's "get an extra job delivering pizzas" philosophy pretty hard.

Being cubicle bound in Chicago, I only have time for a quick review of the excerpts before getting back to my real job. If I start jumping over to places like Townhall and JWR, I would get anything done!

But . . . but . . . it might be some dreaful coicidence . . .Defense attorney John Tyre said outside court that DNA does not prove murder. "If it is his DNA it indicates he had sex with these women some time prior to them dying," Tyre said.

This is technically true, but one could equally well say that "the presence of elemental lead in the body does not prove murder, it only shows that the deceased was shot some time before dying."
