A daughter has spoken of her anguish at the possibility that she could one day come face-to-face with the man who killed her mother.
Fifty-two-year-old Karen Welsh was strangled by John Constantine at her home in Thornhill in 2010 after befriending him in hospital.
He was later convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
Now Karen's daughter Joanne Welsh says that she's been told the Prison Service is considering moving him to a mental health unit in South Wales.
A bereavement expert said the situation is likely to affect family's members' emotions, adding that the grief process is "hard enough".
The Prison Service says it doesn't comment on individual cases.
