CONVICTED killer Andrew Wallace will “entertain an approach from police” once his court case is over as cops continue the search for body parts of victim Julie Reilly.

Judge Lady Rae asked Ian Duguid QC, representing Wallace, whether his client would co-operate with police to recover the rest of Reilly’s remains.

He said his client was “prepared to entertain an approach from the police” once the court case is over but his client would say nothing further.

Duguid said the murder happened after an argument.

He told the court: “Julie Reilly had taken a knife and presented it at the accused.

“The accused had taken the knife from her and stabbed her in the chest.

“As far as my instructions are, these are the explanations of how she met her death.

“It is a shocking crime which is no doubt exacerbated by events which followed it.”

Reilly was reported missing in mid-February after she failed to pick up her prescription at the pharmacists, and family members raised concerns.

On April 19 a member of the public called police to say he could see what appeared to be a bone with flesh attached to it in his front garden at Ardshiel Road in Govan.

It was recovered by officers and DNA testing confirmed it was Reilly’s right femur.

Goddard told the court that on April 23 another member of the public went to the police station to report finding what appeared to be a burial site containing “fleshy material”.

The site was excavated and remains were recovered which were confirmed to be Reilly’s other femur.

The court heard that Wallace was convicted of culpable homicide in 1992 and sentenced to ten years in jail and had other previous convictions for violence.

Judge Lady Rae said at the Glasgow High Court on Friday to Wallace: “You are, in my view, a dangerous man who has a considerable propensity for violence.”
