Emily Longley murder-accused appears in court

The former boyfriend of New Zealand teenager Emily Longley has appeared in a British court charged with her murder.

The 17-year old former Auckland school-girl was found dead at Elliot Turner's home in Bournemouth in May.

Twenty year old Turner, who's a jeweller, is also accused of perverting the course of justice.

He's been remanded in custody to appear at Winchester Crown Court next week.

Earlier Turner's parents also appeared in court charged with intending to pervert the course of justice.

It's alleged they failed to phone emergency services and removed and destroyed evidence.
