A black widow killer branded a "devious liar" by a judge has reinvented herself as the owner of a dog-minding business.
Pet owners who use Julie McGinley's services have no idea that the seemingly friendly middle-aged blonde woman is in fact one of Northern Ireland's most notorious murderers.
Two decades ago, the 49-year-old ex-prostitute had her husband Gerry McGinley beaten to death in Fermanagh and his body buried across the border so she could get her hands on a £310,000 life insurance policy. She served 15 years of a life sentence before being freed on licence in 2015.
After her release, she got engaged to a former BBC producer and is now living at a new address in east Belfast from where she is running her popular pet-minding service.
She can often been seen walking from the property accompanied by several dogs on leads which she takes to parks.
She has also been using its social media accounts to promote animal rights, including describing as "evil" a Lurgan man convicted of beating a dog to death.
The irony of one killer calling another "evil" seems entirely lost on the murderer, who was branded "evil" by her victim's mother Betty McGinley.
Sources who tipped off Sunday Life about McGinley's new business venture insist that her customers have a right to know that they are dealing with a scheming killer.
One said: "Julie is very careful not to appear in any pictures or videos on the social media pages linked to her business. She keeps a low profile.
"Her new neighbours don't seem to know who she is or what she was convicted of as she is a very convincing liar who is able to keep her violent steak well hidden.
"There is still a lot of anger in Fermanagh over how she arranged her husband Gerry's murder so she could cash in on his life insurance policy. It happened 21 years ago, but people haven't forgotten."
McGinley, a mother of two, tasked her violent secret lover Mick Monaghan (59) with the murder of her husband.
The August 2000 attack took place in an adjoining bedroom at their former home in the village of Coa near Enniskillen.
Before having Gerry killed, she took out a £310,000 life insurance policy on her husband which she could cash in after his death.
She initially paid a £4,000 deposit to a hitman to have him shot. However, the assassination was called off when she was unable to come up with the rest of the cash.
This was after she failed to have Gerry arrested when she planted what she was thought was heroin in his car and tipped-off gardai when he crossed the border.
The powder turned out to be kitchen spices and he was freed without charge.
Getting desperate, she convinced her lover Mick Monaghan - who was also a partner in a business which was £76,000 in debt - to murder Gerry.
Gerry was beaten to death while he slept after a night of heavy drinking.
McGinley and Monaghan then took Gerry's body from the house in Coa and dumped it in a secluded spot across the border in Co Leitrim.
The killers were soon living together and dreaming of a new future funded by the £310,000 life insurance policy.
But they were behind bars a year later after a schoolgirl stumbled across Gerry's badly decomposed body in woodland. She alerted police who found bloodstains in Monaghan's van which matched the murder victim's DNA.
Detectives also discovered he had been having an affair with McGinley, with a witnesses seeing them having sex in their furniture shop and in a car. Forensic tests on Julie's bedsheets proved they were partners as they also carried Monaghan's DNA.
After being charged with murder, they both pleaded innocence, only for a jury to find them guilty after a 13-week trial.
Sentencing them to life with a minimum 15-year tariff, Judge Kerr said: "The determination to carry out this murder was clearly callous and chilling, especially when one considers it had to be executed while two young girls, scarcely more than infants, lay sleeping in the house."
After McGinley was jailed, her past as a prostitute emerged, as did her involvement in a series of blackmail plots which netted her thousands.
She targeted wealthy farmers and businessmen, secretly filming them having sex and then demanding huge sums of cash. If the money was not paid, she threatened to hand over the recordings to her target's wives. Detectives believe that she had at least 19 sex tapes recorded.
After a failed attempt to appeal her murder conviction in 2006, a judge said of McGinley: "She would lie and lie again to serve her own purposes."
Retired PSNI Detective Chief Superintendent Norman Baxter, who brought McGinley and her lover to justice, later told Sunday Life: "She came from a stable and respected family background. Somewhere in her lifetime, she became socially dysfunctional where her moral compass became altered.
"She was prepared to countenance personal behaviour known only to the most depraved and debased levels in society."
