Turner was tried for "conspiring to rebel and making insurrection", convicted, and sentenced to death. Turner was hanged in Jerusalem, Virginia. His body was flayed and beheaded as an example to frighten other would-be rebels. Turner received no formal burial; his headless remains were possibly buried in an unmarked grave.
