‘Boy racer’ faces jail thumbnail Shane Kinney pictured at an earlier court appearance in Coleraine.

A KILLER driver was yesterday (Monday) warned that he faces being jailed after confessing to causing a three-car crash in Ballycastle which claimed two men's lives.
Moments after issuing his stark warning to 22-year-old Shane Kinney, who pleaded guilty to causing death and grievous bodily injury, Judge Desmond Marrinan added that his parents Sharon and Kevin also "stand at great peril of going to prison" after they admitted perverting the course of justice.
So-called "boy racer" Kinney and his parents, all from the Drones Road in Armoy, were due to stand trial. But, after several hours of delay at Antrim Crown Court, their lawyers asked for some of the charges to be put to them again.
Shane Kinney pleaded guilty to causing the deaths of Robin Wilson and Johnny Black on April 6, 2015, by driving dangerously on the Cushendall Road in Ballycastle.
He also entered guilty pleas to causing grievous bodily injury to Clodagh Arbuckle and Denise Dunlop, also by dangerous driving.
