THE man who killed New Zealander Emily Longley has allegedly been beaten up in prison and had his cell burned, after he apparently put up photos of his victim and bragged about receiving fan mail.

Elliot Turner, 20, was given a life sentence after strangling Longley, who was 17, in Bournemouth in 2011.

He is currently appealing both conviction and sentence.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, Turner had put up photos of Emily on the walls of his Kent cell, and was boasting about the day he was released and his return to life of “champagne, Bentleys and birds”.

A source told the paper that he had been bragging about getting fan mail from women, after which was was attacked by fellow inmates.

His cell was later torched.”Turner is a gobby little prick who has had it coming for some time,” the prison source told the paper.

Turner has since been moved to another wing.

His 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.
