We would like to see a change in Scots Law that would prevent convicted murderers from being able to act as Administrator/Executor of the estate of the person they were convicted of killing.

Ross Taggart is currently in jail in Scotland dictating to his Lawyers what should be done with the estate of the person he murdered, his Sister is unable to obtain access to her own Mothers home to collect personal and sentimental items as he continues to reject her requests.

Lorraine has no pictures of/with her mother from when she was a child, all the family photographs and memories are locked away in a house that a convicted murderer makes the decisions about.

My wife and her father have been unable to move on with their lives since this happened in 2014 and would like some closure on this.

The below gives a brief explanation of what Ross Taggart did to his own Mother.

A man has been found guilty of murdering his mother and disposing of her body under a caravan in Fife.

Ross Taggart, 31, throttled 54-year-old Carol Taggart after an argument shortly before Christmas 2014.

The judge told him: "How you have lived with your conscience since you murdered your mother, I do not know."

Lord Uist said: "You have been convicted by the unanimous verdict of the jury of the terrible crime of the murder of your own mother, a woman who did a great deal, indeed probably too much, for you in the course of her life.

"In the course of an argument on December 21 or 22 2014 you caused her head injuries and throttled her to death.

"You thereafter embarked on a calculated course of deceit by reporting her as missing to the police and persistently lying about your actions."

The judge, Lord Uist, sentenced him to life in prison and ordered him to serve a minimum of 18 years.

Taggart had denied murdering his mother on 21 or 22 December 2014 at the house they shared at Hill of St Margaret in Dunfermline.

Taggart was also convicted for attempting to pervert the course of justice after he hid his mother's body within a caravan park in Pettycur Bay, Kinghorn.

He was found guilty after a trial at the High Court in Edinburgh.
