Family and friends of Bruce Turnidge told the jury about his personality as the penalty phase of the trial continues today in Marion County Court. The jury must decide if he should be sentenced to the death penalty, life in prison or parole after 30 years. Evelyn Knight is his mother. “Well, of my five children, Bruce was my leveler. I can never remember a time when he lost his temper. He was a happy kid and just never caused us any trouble.” It was two years ago yesterday that a bomb exploded at the West Coast Bank in Woodburn. Bruce Turnidge and his son, Joshua, convicted of aggravated murder for building and planting the device that killed two police officers. Josh Turnidge's penalty phase will be handled next.
