Moira’s killer sent back to Slovakia to be near family
THE man who murdered a Scots businesswoman in a city park has been allowed to return to his native Slovakia to be nearer to his family.
Marek Harcar was responsible for the sex murder of Moira Jones ten years ago in Glasgow. He was caught on CCTV grabbing 40-year-old Ms Jones as she tried to park her Toyota 4X4 at her flat in Queen’s Park.
He dragged her into undergrowth where he raped her and inflicted 65 separate injuries by beating and stamping on her.
Harcar was jailed for life in 2009 for the rape and murder and ordered to serve 25 years behind bars.
Last night, it was revealed that he had been allowed to return to Slovakia to serve out the remainder of his sentence at a prison in the town of Banska Bystrica. The move was permitted under the Council of Europe Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Prisoners.
It means he can receive visits from his family once a month.
