Four brothers have been found guilty of the manslaughter of Portadown girl Lisa McClatchey and her boyfriend seven years ago.

Niall, Martin, Christopher and Stephen Smith killed Thomas O’Hare and Girls’ Brigade leader Lisa at the couple’s home near Tassagh in 2006.

They had been accused of murder, but on Tuesday were convicted of manslaughter.

The brothers had admitted breaking into the house, beating Mr O’Hare and pouring petrol around the property, but denied intending to kill either victim.
