KILLER Luke Mitchell was moved to a high security jail days after bombshell recorded phonecalls from behind bars were posted online.
Jodi Jones’ murderer, 34, was switched from HMP Greenock to tougher Shotts nick in Lanarkshire last week.

The lifer — who could be released as early as 2025 — had been held in the Renfrewshire nick’s Chrisswell House.
It is typically used to help long-term inmates progress into an open prison.
But sources last night claimed the clips led to him being hauled back to a prison with less privileges.
In the calls, which run to more than two hours, he told of his excitement at been taken out on secret trips to Glasgow, where he had a meal at burger chain Five Guys and mingled with unsuspecting shoppers on a busy bank holiday.
A jail insider revealed: “He was going back to Shotts the moment those videos came out.”
The fiend was also taped pleading to be allowed to visit his mother.
But he whinged that social workers had barred the trips for fear of upsetting neighbours.
He also made claims about the prison and its staff, and spoke about working towards his eventual release — including “community access” visits outside jail.
Before we revealed the calls had been posted online, it emerged the killer had failed a jail drug test.
Mitchell was convicted of the knife murder of girlfriend Jodi when they were both 14, which he still denies.
The Scottish Prison Service said it does not comment on individual lags.
