From the BBC…
Serial killer Peter Tobin has died in hospital, at the age of 76.

He was also serving life terms at HMP Edinburgh for the murders of 15-year-old Vicky Hamilton and 18-year-old Dinah McNicol.
Police Scotland confirmed that he died at 06:04 on Saturday at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. Click here to read more
