A murderer who watched football on TV as the corpse of his victim lay beside him will spend at least 16 years in jail.
Norman Fraser (58) battered 46-year-old Michelle McCue to death at his Grangemouth home in May.
He then went about his regular business for the next two days - even visiting a friend and then returning home to watch the Barcelona v Manchester United Champions League final.
The callous killer told his friend: “She’s dead. If it wasn’t for the Champions League, I would report it.”
Giving Fraser a life sentence and ordering he serve a minimum of 16 years, Judge Lady Stacey said: “You have taken the life of another person and nothing that I can say can reduce the grief and pain that Mrs McCue’s family suffer.”
