THE judge in the Emily Longley murder trial has told the jury to keep a “cool head” when considering their verdict today.

The Honourable Mrs Justice Linda Dobbs told the panel of 11 men and one woman to put aside any prejudice or sympathy and added: “A cool head and a dispassionate appraisal of the evidence is what is called for.”

The prosecution alleges that Elliot Turner, 20, strangled 17-year-old Brockenhurst College student Emily in a bedroom in his family home in Queenswood Avenue, Bournemouth, on May 7 last year.

Elliot Turner denies murder, and his parents, Leigh Turner, 54, and Anita Turner, 51, deny perverting the course of justice.
