The jury has retired for the night in the trial of a man accused of killing his wife.
The panel left the courtroom at the High Court in Edinburgh at 12.30pm on Tuesday.
They will now consider the charges against Nat Fraser, 53, who is standing trial accused of killing Arlene, 33, at her home in Smith Street, New Elgin, Moray.
It is alleged he strangled his wife or murdered her "by other means to the prosecutor unknown".
Mr Fraser has pled not guilty with a special defence of alibi and incrimination, blaming former friend Hector Dick, of Mosstowie, Elgin, if she was killed.
The mother of two vanished on Tuesday, April 28, 1998 and has not been seen since. Mr Scott made the statements during his closing speech at the High Court in Edinburgh, where the trial entered its sixth week on Monday.
