MARK NEWALL, given a six- year jail sentence this week for helping to cover up the murder of his parents in Jersey, said he would respect the wishes of his uncle and aunt and allow them to have the bodies for burial, writes Bill Brown.

Newall is executor of the will of his parents, Nicholas and Elizabeth Newall, and has denied that he did not want their bodies to be returned to Scotland.

Roderick Newall, who is serving life for their murders, had shown police where the bodies were buried. His father's twin brother, Stephen Newall, and sister, Nancy Clark, decided that their bodies should be returned to the land of their birth.
