A BRUTE who murdered a gran has converted to Islam behind bars - so he can avoid work.Source
Evil David Millar - who stabbed frail 82-year-old Lucy Marshall to death - will skip his duties in the laundry because of his new faith.
He will be excused from work on Fridays so he can attend prayers.
And he's told pals he'll not have to do chores during the holy month of Ramadan.
The 28-year-old will also receive special halal meals such as curries at Dumfries prison.
Murdered ... Lucy
One jail source said: "He works in the laundry but wants to use his new-found faith to get out of it.
"He's told a few of his cronies he won't have to work for the whole of Ramadan, which us basically like getting a month off his duties.
"It's so see-through."
Jail sources claim Millar - who was just 14 when he knifed Lucy in a Buckfast-fuelled frenzy in 1997 in Cowdenbeath, Fife - showed no previous interest in Islam before his conversion.
But it's believed the fitness fanatic thought a Muslim diet would aid his weight training.
One guard said: "It came out of the blue.
"But we're duty-bound to help once a prisoner decides to become Muslim."
Millar - who was detained without limit of time - married behind bars after meeting wife Sheree Malik, 29, on an online dating website for cons.
The SPS said it could not comment on individual cases.
Last month we revealed how wife killer Malcolm Webster, 52, became a Muslim convert because he fancied better grub.
And here is the story about the other killer converting to Islam a few weeks ago:

The murderer revealed his plans to adopt the religion after learning about exotic meals such as Indonesian chicken.
But fellow lags at Glasgow's Barlinnie nick - who are served bland grub like sausage and chips - are outraged by the 52-year-old's scam.
A source said: "There is no way Webster is serious about converting - he doesn't come across as the religious type. He's just greedy and the prison authorities should tell him to sling his hook. Muslims are supposed to pray five times a day - but he doesn't even have a prayer mat."
Evil Webster was ordered to serve at least 30 years for the murder of first wife Claire Morris, 32. He drugged her then left her to die in a burning car after staging a crash in Kingoodie, Aberdeenshire, in 1994.
Just five years later, the nurse tried to kill second wife Felicity Drumm, 50, in a copycat attack in New Zealand.
Lags have already branded Webster the "most hated man" in Scotland's jails. The prison service said it does not comment on individual prisoners.
