HOUSE OF HORROR; Ex-warder blasts lover, shoots girl, 15,and then kills himself.

Byline: KEVIN McDONNELL

A BERSERK former prison warder blasted his lover to death, shot her daughter and then killed himself.

Crazed Brian Smith, 47 used his personal protection weapon after a booze-fuelled row with Mary Crilly, 40, in their quiet cul-de-sac in East Belfast.

Mary's 15-year-old daughter was shot twice and was recovering in hospital last night after major surgery. Her 21-year-old brother escaped injury.

Smith had been sacked from his job at Magilligan Prison four months ago for leaving the jail's gates open.

Last night one of the detectives at the scene said: "It was carnage - there was blood everywhere."

Neighbour Kenneth Keenan told how he initially thought the gunshots were fireworks.
