A trial is underway in Washington County for a man accused of attacking and beating a woman on the Lake Fayetteville Trail.
Richard Turner faces Kidnapping and Aggravated Assault charges. Police say the convicted sex offender attacked April Robertson while she was jogging on the trail last year. Robertson told KNWA she was hit in the head and punched in the face before being dragged into the woods and eventually convincing her attacker to let her go.
Turner’s trial began Wednesday.
