Los Angeles -- Showing the strain, actress Lana Turner appears on the verge of collapse as she testifies at the inquest into the death of Johnny Stompanato, her gangland boyfriend, here. Deliberating less than half an hour, the coroner's jury ruled that Stompanato's death, at the hands of Cheryl Crane, Lana's 14-year-old daughter, was "justifiable homicide." (1958)
