Officials said Turner was arrested in Moab, Utah, on Dec. 13 on an unrelated charge and began talking in detail about the incident in DeSoto while in the custody of local law enforcement representatives, including the FBI.

DeSoto police worked with officials in Utah, including the Moab Police, the Grand County Sheriff’s and District Attorney’s offices to detain Turner. He will be held in Utah until he can be returned to Texas to face the allegations.

Turner was also charged with evading police with a vehicle, and prohibited possession of a weapon, and is being held without bond at the Grand County, Utah, Jail.
