Turner lingered in the hospital where he died 10 days later. Feiler was initially found  incompetent to stand trial for the murder and was sent to Napa state hospital. Ferguson says he was treated and his competency was reinstated to the point where he could assist his attorney in his defense,and Feiler was returned to Nevada County to face the charges. Feiler is represented by Public Defender Keri Klein.  The Assistant District Attorney says it’s a common misconception that life in prison means someone will die in prison. She says that’s not the case in California.
