Arlene Fraser murder trial: Fraser’s ex-friend behind Arlene’s death, court told
The man Nat Fraser claims could have been behind his wife’s alleged murder told a jury that he did not kill the mother-of-two.
Hector Dick faced defence claims in court that he had lied persistently and it was the “obvious conclusion” that he was responsible for the death of Arlene Fraser.
Mr Dick, 56, has been giving evidence for a week at the trial of his former friend, 53-year-old Fraser.
Fraser is on trial at the High Court in Edinburgh, where he is accused of acting with others to murder 33-year-old Mrs Fraser, who vanished from her home in New Elgin, Moray, on 28 April 1998. The businessman denies the charge and claims that, if his estranged wife was killed, Mr Dick could be to blame.
Mr Dick, a farmer from Mosstowie, Elgin, has told the court that Fraser admitted paying a hitman £15,000 to kill his wife.
