CONVICTED murderer Nat Fraser has had six months added to his 17-year jail term for the 1998 killing of his wife Arlene.
That follows his appearance at Livingston Sheriff Court earlier this week when he admitted being in possession of a mobile phone in prison.
Fraser was jailed in May 2012 following a retrial at the High Court in Edinburgh for plotting and arranging the murder of his estranged wife Arlene (33).
Fraser (59) was originally sentenced to life and ordered to serve a minimum of 25 years in 2003 after being found guilty of murder.
However, that conviction was quashed but Fraser, of Elgin, was subsequently found guilty following a second trial eight years later.
The earliest he can be considered for release is 2030.
Fraser has always maintained his innocence and Arlene’s body has never been found.
