A man convicted of murdering and dismembering an 18-year-old was reportedly scalded by boiling water in a revenge attack while serving time in a Scottish prison.
William Beggs was sentenced to life in prison in 2001 for the brutal murder of 18-year-old Barry Wallace, whose dismembered body was disposed of in Loch Lomond. Beggs later became known as the "Limbs in the Loch Killer."
According to reports, Beggs was in his cell at Saughton Prison in Edinburgh when fellow inmate Daniel Hamilton approached him and then threw boiling water in his face.
Hamilton, who was serving time for a drug-related crime and reportedly due to be released, bragged about the attack to friends after he was moved from the prison. The attack was allegedly an act of revenge against Beggs.
Hamilton will serve the rest of his sentence at a prison in the town of Shotts.
