A pre-op transsexual killer who was jailed in an all-women’s prison in Scotland has been transferred after claiming to have had sex with a number of other inmates.

Paris Green, formerly Peter Laing, was sent to Cornton Vale prison five weeks ago for the murder of Robert Shankland. Kevin McDonagh, 23, and Dean Smith, 20, were also convicted. All three were sentenced to a minimum of 18 years in jail.


Green has been moved to a special section of Saughton prison in Edinburgh following the allegations. The 22-year-old is scheduled to undergo gender realignment surgery at the expense of Scottish taxpayers.

“Every word that comes out of his mouth is filth," A Scottish Prisons Service source told the Daily Record. "He’s disgusting. It was claimed that there were inappropriate incidents with women in Cornton Vale. This was put to the prisoner and then there was a transfer agreed.”

The murder of Shankland, which reportedly occurred after a fight about chips, was described by Judge John Morris QC as “particularly gruesome” and “utterly depraved.”

Shankland's parents are not upset or surprised by the news of Green's move. "There's not much we can do now," Mrs. Bell, 69, told The Courier.


“The law’s a farce. It doesn’t give society any protection," said the victim's 79-year-old stepfather.
