Model Kelsey Turner who modeled for Playboy and Maxim has been arrested on murder charges.

According to The New York Post:

A model whose credits include Playboy Italia and Maxim has been arrested in the murder of a California doctor whose body was found in the trunk of a car outside Las Vegas earlier this month, police said.

Kelsey Turner, 25, was arrested March 21 in Stockton, California, in the death of Thomas Burchard, a 71-year-old child psychiatrist from Salinas whose body was found March 7 in an abandoned car on State Route 147, Las Vegas police announced Thursday.

Turner, who is awaiting extradition to Clark County on a murder charge, was arrested by Las Vegas detectives and members of an FBI Stockton task force.

Additional information about Turner’s arrest was not available, including how investigators connected her to the slaying, but Turner’s mother told KSBW that her daughter and Burchard had known each other for years — and Burchard even paid for a rental home in Salinas where the blond stunner lived with her mother and children.

Burchard, according to the report, had stopped paying rent for the home. It is still unclear if this non-payment could have been motive.
