Killer model now wants to leave jail early after taking day trip to see family

Killer model Caroline Igoe is hoping to leave jail halfway through her sentence after sparking fury with a day trip to see her family.

The mum-of-four is serving 20 years for executing boyfriend Martyn Barclay with a handgun in 2009.

Caroline, 42, posed for a selfie during a hospital visit to see her daughter – with jail sources saying the killer is being given “special treatment”.

Igoe shot Martyn, 26, in the head from point-blank range at home in Edinburgh back in January 2009.

Her family have long protested her innocence, saying she was jailed on “purely ­circumstantial” evidence.

Prosecutor Alex Prentice QC said Martyn’s death was an “act of cold-blooded murder executed with a chilling military precision”.

An online ­petition called for Igoe to get her case reviewed so she can “walk free” – it has since been taken down.

Igoe has made several bids for release and the petition only attracted a handful of ­signatures.

It was launched after a picture posted by a relative on Facebook revealed Igoe had been allowed out of Edinburgh’s Saughton prison in recent months for a hospital visit to see her daughter.

A jail source told the Daily Record: “It’s shocking a convicted killer was let out to visit her daughter.

"She wasn’t even handcuffed during the visit.

The Scottish Prison Service considers each application for day release on a case-by-base basis and full risk assessments are conducted.

A spokesman said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”
