The jury returned its verdict after fours hours deliberation.

A convicted child killer who served a life sentence for murdering a 13-year-old girl has been convicted of sexually abusing two young people.

James Junior McKinstry Craig — who was handed a 21-year sentence in September 1998 for murdering schoolgirl Sonia Forsythe — was convicted for historic sex offences following a two-week trial at Belfast Crown Court.

The jury was sworn in last week and were not told about Craig’s previous conviction. The trial was the subject of a reporting restriction which was lifted after the verdicts were reached.
