A man allegedly beat his partner to death with a toilet paper holder in front of her children in Medina, Minnesota.

Medina Police officers were dispatched to a home in the 500 block of Clydesdale Circle in Medina, Minnesota at around 12:26 a.m. on Dec. 29, 2022, on a report of a woman who’d been in a crash. When the responding officers arrived at the scene, they found a 27-year-old woman unconscious and not breathing with numerous bruises on her body, FOX 9 KMSP reported.

The woman was immediately taken to a hospital for treatment where she succumbed to her injuries.

When officers spoke with the woman's domestic partner, Jeremiah Quan Turner, 25, provided conflicting stories regarding how and why he called 911. Officers saw blood on Turner’s clothes, and also noted blood throughout the bedroom and the bathroom.

Turner initially told the police that the victim had been in a car accident. However, when officers checked for cars at the home, they found two in the garage with barely any damage.

Police then obtained a search warrant and searched the home. When the officers executed the search warrant, they saw blood on the floor in the main living area, as well as, blood in the kitchen and throughout the main bedroom – including on the walls, pillows, bedding, floor, and other areas. Officers also observed what appeared to be diluted blood in the shower, KSTP reported.

During the search, police also found what appeared to be a toilet paper holder that had been broken with blood on it.

Officers also discovered the victim’s two children were present in the residence. When questioned, the older child reported Turner hitting the victim with the toilet paper holder as she told him to "stop a lot."

The child added that Turner grabs things when he gets mad. The child said her mother was crying and telling Turner to stop. However, he took the child’s phone and told her to go to her room before continuing to hit the woman.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s autopsy results revealed that the victim's preliminary cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma or complications from such trauma.

Following this, Turner was arrested and charged with second-degree intentional murder. His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. If convicted of murder, he could face up to 40 years in jail.
