Most likely the starter relay is defective and the electrical contacts inside that send power to the starter motor are stuck in the on position.

would it still turn the starter with the key in the off position if in fact it is the starter relay

Yes, the power to the starter comes directly from the battery cable and does not go thru the ignition switch.
