Elliot Turner murdered his girlfriend Emily Longley
A former Solihull schoolboy has been warned to forget about "Champagne, Bentleys and girls" as he begins a jail sentence for the brutal murder of his aspiring model girlfriend.
Wealthy Elliot Turner boasted of his playboy lifestyle with his family’s money before he strangled pretty 17-year-old Emily Longley in a jealous rage last May.
A court heard he went "absolutely nuts" and killed her after smothering her face in a pillow.
Jailing 20-year-old Turner for at least 16 years after he was convicted of murder, judge Mrs Justice Dobbs said his lack of remorse was "chilling".
"You told your parents you loved Emily – you do not know the meaning of love," she told him.
"You did not love her, she was just a trophy.
"In my judgment it’s apparent you had been thinking of killing Emily and it was only a matter of time before it happened because it’s clear she wanted to be free from you and you would not let that happen.
"You bullied, harassed, threatened and assaulted her.
"You can put away thoughts of Champagne, Bentleys and girls and concentrate on the reason you are serving a life sentence."
She also sentenced Turner to nine months, to run concurrently, for perverting the course of justice. Turner’s parents, Leigh, 54, and Anita, 51, also face jail terms after being convicted of the same charge.
Leigh destroyed a letter written by his son confessing he had strangled Emily and Anita took the jacket from the bedroom where, the prosecution said, the letter was.
His mother even delayed calling an ambulance as the teenager lay dead in a bed at their Bournemouth home to give the killer more time to concoct an alibi.
But their fate was sealed in evidence put to the jury after their home was bugged by police.
Winchester Crown Court heard Turner was born in the Midlands in 1991 and spent his early years in Solihull before moving to the south coast with his parents in 2000.
He is reportedly the grandson of millionaire Gerard Broadway, who owns Birmingham-based Broadway Silversmiths.
Mr Broadway could not be contacted for comment yesterday.
Turner dubbed, "All-Talk Turner" by his friends because of his boastfulness, met Emily in December 2010, soon after she had returned from living in New Zealand with her family.
But he could not handle the attention she received from other men.
After Turner was jailed, Emily’s father Mark said: "We are pleased he is not on the streets now. He’s an incredibly dangerous person and we are relieved he cannot do this again."
