An appeal hearing is to be held this month for the man convicted of murdering New Zealander Emily Longley.

Elliot Turner, 21, will appear at the Court of Appeal in London on April 24 (local time) in a bid to have his murder conviction overturned, the Daily Echo reported.

Longley's mother, Caroline, would be travelling from New Zealand for the hearing.

Turner was jailed for life in May last year after being convicted of killing aspiring model Longley, 17, in his bed at his family's Bournemouth home in May 2011. He has to serve 16 years before being considered for parole.

During the trial, Turner admitted grabbing Longley by the throat during an argument, but claimed it was self defence and she was alive afterwards

Turner’s parents, Leigh and Anita Turner, were convicted during the same trial of perverting the course of justice by destroying a confession note from Turner and removing a jacket from the scene. They were each jailed for 27 months.
