THE jury in the Emily Longley murder trial have today heard evidence from a forensic scientist who examined brown stains found on the right sleeve of Elliot Turner's shirt seized by police after Emily died.

Darryl Manners compared the stains with swabs containing make-up taken from the right side of Emily's face and neck and said it provided “strong support” for the proposition that they came from the same source.

Mr Manners also told Winchester Crown court that he found, what he described, as an impression of a “face mask” on a beige pillowcase taken from the Turners' home in Queenswood Avenue, Bournemouth.

Elliot Turner, 20, is accused of murdering Emily Longley, 17, on May 7 last year. He is also accused, together with his parents Leigh Turner, 54, and Anita Turner, 51, of perverting the course of justice. All three deny the charges.

The trial continues.
