A British man convicted of murdering New Zealander Emily
Longley has reportedly been beaten up in jail and had his cell
torched, after he pinned up photos of his victim in his cell
and bragged about receiving fan mail.
Elliot Turner, 20, was sentenced to life in prison with a
16-year non-parole period for strangling Ms Longley, 17, in
Bournemouth, England, in 2011.
Emily's body was found in Turner's parents' Bournemouth home
on May 7.
Turner is appealing against his conviction and sentence.
According to the Daily Star, Turner had pinned photos of Ms
Longley on the wall of his cell at HMP Swaleside in Kent.
He also reportedly spoke about the day he would be released
and return to his life of "champagne, Bentleys and birds".
An unnamed source told the paper that Turner, the son of a
millionaire jeweller, had bragged to fellow inmates about fan
mail he had received from women. He was attacked by some
inmates shortly afterwards.
Turner had since been moved to another wing of the prison,
the paper reported.
Turner's parents Leigh, 54, and Anita, 51, were jailed for 27
months in July for perverting the course of justice, after
they destroyed a confession letter from their son and took
evidence from the murder scene.
