Emily Longley murder: Parents jailed for cover-up
The couple took away vital evidence after the killing at their home in Bournemouth
A couple who covered up their son's murder of his girlfriend at their Bournemouth home have been jailed.

Leigh Turner, 54, and Anita Turner, 51, were each given 27 month terms after being found guilty of perverting the course of justice.

They took away evidence and destroyed a confession letter by their son Elliot, 20, after he strangled Emily Longley, 17, in his bed at the family home.

Elliot Turner was convicted of murder at Winchester Crown Court in May.

In sentencing, the judge said that it was a tragedy that the parents had lost their good character out of misplaced loyalty and their actions had caused their other son, aged 16, to suffer.
