No Contest Plea In Football Player Murder

KSAL StaffMarch 25, 2014

A woman pleaded no contest to planning the shooting death of a former Kansas high school football player.

Twenty-two-year-old Ebony Nguyen entered the plea Monday to felony first-degree murder. She was scheduled to go on trial this week for premeditated first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the 2013 death of former Wichita South High School student Jordan Turner. Turner was a standout who went on to play at Coffeyville Community College and Arizona Western.

Under the plea deal, Nguyen must serve 20 years in prison before she is eligible for parole.

Prosecutors alleged Nguyen talked another man into killing Turner because he used counterfeit money to buy marijuana from her.

One co-defendant, Kristopher Wright, is awaiting sentencing for first-degree murder. A third suspect is awaiting trial.
