Elliot Turner makes defence in Emily Longley trial

A man accused of murdering his girlfriend in a jealous rage has told Winchester Crown Court he only defended himself after she attacked him.

Elliot Turner, 20, said that an argument in his bedroom turned violent and he was forced to grab aspiring model Emily Longley, 17, by the throat.

He said he never strangled her but found her dead in his bed the next morning, on 7 May 2011.

Mr Turner, of Queenswood Avenue, Bournemouth, Dorset, denies murder. The trial continues.
