NJ man calls police to report he killed girlfriend

Authorities in northern New Jersey say a man fatally shot his girlfriend, then went to a movie theater and called police so they could arrest him.

Bail was set Saturday at $1 million for 24-year-old Jordan Turner, who faces murder and weapons charges.

Bergen County prosecutors say Turner called Bergenfield policed just after midnight and said he had shot Heather Reyes several times with a rifle at a home in Dumont, where he had recently rented a room.

Turner couldn't remember the address, but Dumont officers found the home after he provided a description. They found Reyes' body on a floor inside the room, along with the rifle.

Turner was later taken into custody outside the theater in Paramus after he told authorities what clothes he was wearing.
