Hitman And Accomplice Facing 'Long Jail Terms'

A gangland hitman and his accomplice are expected to be hit with long jail terms at Liverpool Crown Court later.

Mark Fellows shot John Kinsella in an execution-style killing in Rainhill last year.

Three years earlier, as part of the same criminal feud, he killed Paul Massey with an Uzi machine gun in Salford.

His accomplice, Steven Boyle, was found guilty of the murder of Kinsella, but cleared of murdering Massey.
