Howell booted out of jail job

Double-killer dentist Colin Howell has been kicked out of his job as a hospital orderly in Maghaberry despite his pleas to prison bosses to let him stay.

The 52-year-old monster who murdered his wife and his lover's husband 20 years ago lost his fight to remain in the jail's hospital wing within the last fortnight.

And he's been moved from his cell in the health care unit to another part of the high security prison near Moira.

The switch came at the end of last month, and the self-avowed Christian, who is serving a minimum of 21 years behind bars, is now in Braid House where all life sentence prisoners are held.

“He didn't want to go,” said a prison source.

“He liked the lifestyle and he liked the prestige. But now he's just another lifer in Braid House.”
