Emily Longley's killer has been sentenced to life in prison.

At the Winchester Crown Court in the south of England Elliot Turner was found guilty of murdering the 17-year-old New Zealander and perverting the course of justice.

He's just been sentenced to life in prison, and will serve a minimum of 16 years.

The sentence was read in front of a packed courtroom which included Emily's parents Mark and Caroline, who travelled from New Zealand to attend the trial.
