Greysteel killer jailed for assault (NewsLetter)
Greysteel killer Torrens Knight has been jailed for four months for attacking two women.
He was found guilty in October of punching Caroline Nicholl to the ground and then kicking her before turning his fists on her sister, Rosemary Sutherland, in a Coleraine bar last May.
Secretary of State Shaun Woodward suspended the 40-year-old’s early release license following the incident, forcing Knight to return to prison.
The loyalist was convicted of 12 murders during the Troubles – including those of eight people in the infamous Greysteel massacre.
The killings were always associated with the chilling “trick or treat” phrase, allegedly retorted by one of the gunmen.
A UFF gang that burst into the Rising Sun bar in the Co Londonderry village in Halloween 1993 and opened fire.
Knight was also convicted of the murders of four Catholic builders in the nearby town of Castlerock earlier that year.
He served seven years before he was released in 1998 under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.
