Leigh, 54, and Anita, 51, of Queenswood Avenue, Queens Park, Bournemouth were convicted of destroying what police said was a confession note from their son and removing a jacket from the crime scene at their home.

The judge, Mrs Justice Dobbs, has already warned the couple they face prison.

Elliot Turner, now 21, has been jailed for life for strangling his model girlfriend Emily Longley, a popular 17-year-old student, at his family home on May 7 last year.

He was told he faces at least 16 years behind bars before being considered for release from prison.

The court heard jealous and possessive Turner murdered Brockenhurst College student Emily after making many threats to kill her.

Evidence to the court painted a picture of a wealthy, spoilt, arrogant young man who regarded Emily as a trophy.

Sentencing him, the judge said: “You can put away your thoughts of champagne, Bentleys and girls and concentrate on the reasons why you are serving a life sentence.”
