Robert Stella, elder abuse case update

Restraining order filed against alleged perpetrator

By Pat Sherman
A civil court judge has granted a five-year restraining order against Victoria Turner, the woman accused of abusing 91-year-old La Jolla resident Robert Stella.
As reported in La Jolla Light in March, Stella was removed from his home on Avenida de las Pescas, which the family alleges estranged wife Turner filled with trash, clutter and stray animals — including a dead cat animal control found in the bathroom and a Chihuahua found in the freezer.
The family claims Turner denied Stella food and water, and at times tied him to the bed. Turner later donned a disguise to sneak into the residential care facility where Stella was on the mend. Surveillance cameras captured her attempting to have Stella sign what appeared to be legal documents.
