UK man who murdered an 82-year-old grandmother converts to Islam in jail to get out of doing his work

Evil David Millar, who at 14, stabbed frail 82-year-old Lucy Marshall to death, will skip his duties in the laundry because of his new Islamic faith. He will be excused from work on Fridays so he can attend prayers.

Scottish Sun – And he’s told pals he’ll not have to do chores during the holy month of Ramadan. The 28-year-old will also receive “better grub” with special halal meals such as curries at Dumfries prison.

One jail source said: “He works in the laundry but wants to use his new-found faith to get out of it.
“He’s told a few of his cronies he won’t have to work for the whole of Ramadan, which us basically like getting a month off his duties. “It’s so see-through.”

Jail sources claim Millar – who was just 14 when he knifed Lucy in a Buckfast-fuelled frenzy in 1997 in Cowdenbeath, Fife – showed no previous interest in Islam before his conversion. But it’s believed the fitness fanatic thought a Muslim diet would aid his weight training.

One guard said: “It came out of the blue. “But we’re duty-bound to help once a prisoner decides to become Muslim.” Millar – who was detained without limit of time – married behind bars after meeting wife Sheree Malik, 29, on an online dating website for cons.

I wonder how many do this in US prisons for the same reasons?
