Family must ask killer's permission to change gravestone of the wife he murdered

The family of a woman murdered by her husband want to change the wording on her gravestone to her maiden name and remove his reference to "my dear wife".

But, unbelievably, the local council says they could be prosecuted if they alter the wording without his permission.

Malcolm Webster drugged Claire Morris, crashed their car and set it alight. He thought it was the perfect murder, but Webster was convicted of murder last month, 17 years after the crime. He had tried to kill his second wife in the same way.
