Good job, bad bastard gets a kicking in jail

The killer of Emily Longley has received a right good kicking in prison

The man who murdered 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 Emily Longley, 17, in Bournemouth, England, in 2011.

Emily’s body was found in Turner’s parents’ Bournemouth home on May 7.

Turner is appealing the conviction and sentence. 

According to the Daily Star, Turner had plastered photos of Emily on the walls 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”.

A 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 before Christmas. It was after this he was attacked by some of the inmates.

The source accused Turner of reporting the attack to staff at the category B prison, which was followed with Turner’s cell being torched.

“Turner is a gobby little prick who has had it coming for some time,” the prison source told the paper.

Good job. Love the “gobby little prick” quote.
