The defense uses Bruce Turnidge's role as a loving grandfather to persuade the jury against giving him the death penalty. He and his son, Joshua, were convicted for aggravated murder in the Woodburn bank bombing last week. Bruce Turnidge's wife, Janet, says he and his granddaughter have a special bond: “Cheyenne loves her ‘Poppy’, as she calls him. He’s a stabilizer in her life. He is more of a father figure than a grandfather figure.”  Other family members say the 12-year-old will be devastated if she loses him to the death penalty. The jury could also penalize him with life in prison, or life with an opportunity for parole after 30 years. Joshua Turnidge's penalty proceedings are next. The jury's decisions will be read after the second penalty phase.
