Convicted UFF man Torrens Knight was on his way back to gaol last night. Knight was given twelve life sentences for the killing of eight people in the Rising Sun Bar in Greysteel in 1993 and he was also sentenced for the killings of four others. He was released early under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement. He was convicted earlier this month of an assault on two women in a Coleraine premises in 2008. Northern Ireland Secretary of State Shaun Woodward has suspended his early release licence. The Sentence Review Commission will decide Mr Knight’s fate in the coming weeks.
