The jury has retired to consider its verdicts for a second day in the trial of a man accused of the murder of his aspiring-model girlfriend.

Elliot Turner, 20, is accused of strangling 17-year-old Emily Longley in the bedroom of his house in Bournemouth, Dorset, while in a jealous rage.

The jury at Winchester Crown Court is also deliberating whether Turner's parents, Leigh, 54, and Anita, 51, are guilty of perverting the course of justice by helping their son cover up the crime by destroying a confession letter.

Turner pleaded guilty during the trial to a charge of perverting the course of justice.

The four-week trial has heard Turner killed Emily in his bed after going "absolutely nuts" in the culmination of a month of anger and upset over his suspicions she was "twisting his heart" by seeing other men.
