Wife killer may regain freedom in appeal bid
WIFE killer Malcolm Webster could ask a judge to free him from prison while he tries to clear his name, the Press and Journal can reveal.
Last night his legal team said there was “no reason” why the murderer should not be allowed to regain his liberty as he mounts a bid to overturn his conviction. The former nurse was sentenced to 30 years in jail for killing Claire Morris in Aberdeenshire in 1994 and for plotting to kill second wife Felicity Drumm in New Zealand five years later.
His appeal will call for the first time at the High Court in Edinburgh this morning.
