Mur­derer con­tin­ued his vi­o­lent life be­hind bars


SINCE he was locked up for life in 2009 for mur­der­ing Conor Black, Shane Boyd has re­peat­edly been in trou­ble.

He has twice been caught post­ing pictures of him­self on Face­book from be­hind bars and is be­lieved to have used a con­tra­band phone on both oc­ca­sions.

The im­ages posted on­line caused Conor’s fam­ily fur­ther tor­ment.

His aunt, Lynne Black, said at the time: “The pain will never go away, and yet we’re ex­pected to cope with pictures of him smil­ing and muck­ing around like he’s in But­lins. He’s ba­si­cally laugh­ing at his sen­tence and laugh­ing at us.”

Last year, weeks be­fore he be­gan his af­fair with An­drus­jak, Boyd launched a bid for early re­lease, claim­ing he had made ‘ex­cep­tional progress’ in­side.

But a High Court judge re­jected the plea af­ter hear­ing he had been dis­ci­plined be­hind bars for mul­ti­ple in­ci­dents of fight­ing and as­sault.
