Kinney jailed after fatal car crash thumbnailShane Kinney was jailed for nine years but will only serve over four in prison, with the remaining time on licence

A CO Antrim man broke down in the dock last Tuesday (September 12) after he was handed a nine year prison sentence for causing the death of his cousin and another man.
Judge Desmond Marrinan told a sobbing Shane Kinney he would spend four and a half years in custody and a further four and and a half year on supervised licence on his release from jail for what he described as a "dreadful accident in an almost head-on collision" which had left behind a scene of "devastation and carnage."
Kinney (23), of Drones Road, Armoy, appeared back in the dock of Antrim Crown Court after he was remanded in custody the previous Friday by the judge to await his sentence after he pleaded guilty to two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily injury to two female passengers.
