HOW SHALL I KILL HER, MATE?
Pal tells court murder accused practised technique Katy Perry’s ‘Hello Sailor’ dance move
THIS sailor could be forgiven for hoisting his mainmast after sexy singer Katy Perry invited him to tongue her tonsils.
Jolly tar Nicholas “Tanner” Beasley was invited to snog the 27-year-old stunna while she was on stage at the Annapolis Naval Academy in America.
She asked him if he knows “that iconic pose,” - a reference to the classic 1945 snap of a sailor kissing a girl in Times Square on VJ Day.
She then assumed the position to be dipped, leans back, and allows the midshipman to lay a kiss -- a lengthy one -- right on her mouth.
An nautical onlooker said: “More cocoa, Sir?” THE son of a wealthy jeweller accused of strangling his girlfriend in bed had practised the technique on his friend just days earlier, a court heard.
Elliot Turner, 20, allegedly killed aspiring model Emily Longley, 17, in a jealous rage at his parents’ home before they helped him cover up the murder.
His friend, Tom Crowe, 18, told the court that days before the teenager’s death, Turner practised strangling him so hard ‘he started to panic’.
He also said that before Emily, a student, had died Turner even claimed he had already killed her by clubbing her round the head with a hammer.
The jury has heard Turner became jealous because he suspected she had been having affairs during their four month relationship.
Mr Crowe said: “Elliot and me had gone to a local park and he was saying Emily had really done it this time and was seeing other blokes.
“He said: ‘How shall I do it Tom? How shall I kill her, mate?’
“I said: ‘I wouldn’t know, I’m not a murderer.’
“He was coming up with ideas about whether he should set her on fire with petrol in his bedroom or drown her.
“My reaction was to think: ‘Christ, you’re nuts. That’s insane’.
“Then we were joking around and having some horse play when we started wrestling.
“I gave a demonstration of how wrestlers strangle each other on the TV show Smack Down but I couldn’t get my arm around his neck.
“He is very muscular and strong because he drinks protein shakes and goes to the gym.
“He took hold of me the same way and put a lot of pressure on my throat and I started to panic.
“I was struggling and said: ‘Can you get off ’. I held my breath and tapped him on the arm to let go.
“He stopped and we had a joke about it.”
Emily, a student from Auckland, was found dead in Turner’s bed at the house in Bournemouth, Dorset, on May 7 last year.
Winchester Crown Court heard Turner ‘flipped out’ and killed her during a drunken argument.
After the murder Turner is said to have written a letter of confession but it was ruined with bleach by his father, Leigh Turner, 54 to ‘destroy vital evidence.’
His mum Anita, 51, is accused of moving a coat his son wore on the night of Emily’s death.
Jurors heard a police bug of the £350,000 Turner home in the affluent Queens Park area recorded the family talking about ‘fabricating evidence and being worried about lying to police.’
Elliot Turner denies murder and perverting the course of justice. His parents both deny perverting the course of justice.
The trial continues.
