Man 'choked girlfriend in self-defence'
Thursday 10 May 2012
A wealthy jeweller's son accused of murdering his girlfriend in a jealous rage told a jury yesterday that he did not strangle her but merely defended himself after she repeatedly attacked him.
Elliot Turner, 20, said an argument in his bedroom in Bournemouth turned violent and he was forced to grab aspiring model Emily Longley, 17, by the throat to stop her assaults.
He told Winchester Crown Court that he and Emily had argued on 7 May last year, and that she had "started going nuts", and was punching and kicking him. He denies murder and perverting the course of justice. The trial continues.
