London, April 24 (IANS) A suspicious British youngster strangled his model girlfriend in bed and his parents helped him cover up the murder, a court has heard.
Elliot Turner, 20, allegedly "flipped out" and killed Emily Longley, 17, after becoming suspicious that she had been having affairs during their four-month relationship, the Daily Mail reported.
His mother, Anita, 51, and father, Leigh, 57, of coastal resort town Bournemouth, initially told police they had heard Longley talking in their son's bedroom, even though the prosecution say she was already dead.
Turner, son of a wealthy jeweller, is said to have threatened to kill Longley with a hammer and boasted: "I will go to prison for it and still be a millionaire when I come out."
Winchester Crown Court heard that after the alleged murder last May Turner wrote a confession, but it was destroyed with bleach by his 54-year-old father, Leigh.
He said they had argued the night before and she had attacked him, and when he woke up beside her she was dead.
When arrested Turner had his passport in his pocket and his bags packed, the Winchester Crown Court was told.
The trial continues.
