The parents of Elliot Turner, who killed 17-year-old New
Zealander Emily Longley, have reportedly been released from
prison after serving half their sentences for covering up the
Turner, 22, is serving a life sentence for strangling Ms
Longley, his former girlfriend, in his parents' home in
Bournemouth, southern England, in May 2011.
Turner's parents Leigh and Anita were jailed for 27 months in
July last year for perverting the course of justice after
they destroyed a confession letter from their son and took
evidence from the murder scene.
They have recently been released from prison and returned
home, the Southern Daily Echo reported.
Neighbours confirmed both Mr and Mrs Turner had been seen at
the property in recent days, the newspaper reported.
During his trial, the court heard that Turner had "bullied,
harassed, threatened and assaulted" Longley during their
relationship, before going "absolutely nuts" in a jealous
rage on the night he killed her.
Turner appealed to London's Court of Appeal to have his
conviction quashed but that was dismissed in April.
Ms Longley, who moved to New Zealand when she was
9-years-old, had returned to the United Kingdom shortly
before she was killed.
