I turned off the engine, when I tried to start it again the starter kicks but the engine will not turn over as if it's stuck or locked.

    How much current does your starter draw? You could have a Battery, cable or starter problem. You can try to turn engine over with socket and ratchet from the front crank pulley. Sometimes you can remove a cover from the bottom front of the transmission and using tools turn with the flywheel/flexplate teeth. If still does not want to turn can try to take all of the spark plugs out as if cylinder id full or water of fuel it will be in an hydraulic lock and not rotate without causing damage.
