A Dundee man who murdered his wife and hid her body under their bed for a week has been found dead at his home.
Mark Wilson, 48, strangled wife Kate in 2002 and served 12 years of a life sentence before his release in 2014.
He has now been found dead at his home in the city’s Peddie Street.
Police were called to the scene but said there were no suspicious circumstances.
A report was sent to the procurator fiscal and a spokesman for the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal service said: “The procurator fiscal has received a report in connection with the death of a 48-year-old man in Dundee on Tuesday.
“An investigation into the death, under the direction of the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit, is ongoing.”
During his trial in 2002, Wilson denied murdering wife Kate, aged 47. He had told family members she had gone on holiday to Spain when she was in fact lying dead beneath the double bed the couple shared in their home on Westport.
After being reported missing by concerned relatives, a police search team discovered Mrs Wilson’s body bundled up in a blanket and polythene sheeting.
Wilson was arrested hours later after a random check at Stranraer ferry terminal.
He had a one-way ticket to Belfast.
Following his arrest, he told police that she had been strangled with a tie.
He was convicted of murder at the High Court in Edinburgh on a majority verdict in August 2002 and ordered to serve a minimum of 12 years in jail.
Family members were yesterday too upset to comment.
