Your sentence 2 is incorrect with "turn of the worse".
Can one use:
1) The crisis in June took a turn for the worse.
2) The crisis took a turn of the worse in June.
The meaning of 2 is clear. The crisis existed before June but took a turn for the worse in June.
1 seems odd to me. It would make sense if the sentence is about a point of time in June.

Thank you very much Mike and my apologies for the mistake.
It had to be:
2) The crisis took a turn for the worse in June.
I do not know how I made that mistake and how I did not notice it when I reread my post.
Thank you both very much.
It is probably a mistake to never make mistakes. One would not know that feeling.
But I am asking a question here and I really do have to be more careful. There is a time and place for everything, even for messing things up!
