Moray wife killer Nat Fraser has had six months added to his life sentence after being caught with a mobile phone in his prison cell.
He told a court he had borrowed the illegal device from another inmate so he could keep in touch with his mum.
The consecutive sentence – added to his minimum 17-year life sentence for the “cold blooded” murder of his wife Arlene – means his earliest date for parole will now be 2030.
Fraser, 59, from Elgin, Moray, has previously told his visitors that one of the things he missed most in prison was his mother’s home-made soup.
Handcuffed to a female security guard at Livingston Sheriff Court, he pleaded guilty to having the prohibited phone in HMP Addiewell, West Lothian, in June 2017.
Fraser was convicted twice of organising the killing of his 33-year-old wife Arlene after she made plans to divorce him.
She vanished from their home on April 28, 1998 after her two children – then aged 20 and five years – went to school.
No trace of her was ever found.
