Four life terms for dad who murdered women and children

A FATHER murdered two women and two children in a jealous rage before travelling to a tourist town for a pint.

John Geary (37) of Meadow Court, Newcastle West, Co Limerick, killed his ex-partner and their five-month-old daughter because she had left him.

He stabbed the other woman and a three-year-old boy to death because they had arrived at the scene and caught him.

Four knives and a screwdriver were used in the attack and the victims were stabbed almost 60 times.


Mr Justice Paul Carney sentenced him to life imprisonment at the Central Criminal Court yesterday.

Geary had pleaded guilty to murdering his ex-partner Sarah Hines (25), their five-month-old daughter Amy, her three-year-old brother Reece and 20-year-old Alicia Brough at a house in Hazelgrove, Newcastle West on November 15, 2010.

Detective Inspector Eamon O'Neill told the court gardai found two knives and a screwdriver at the scene, but believed up to five weapons were used.

He explained that when Geary arrived at the house he found Sarah and Amy Hines. "Alicia Brough had taken Reece to the butcher's," he said.

He said that Geary had attacked mother and baby with a knife with exceptional violence "to say the least".

He inflicted 21 wounds on his ex-partner's face, neck and chest and inflicted nine knife wounds on his baby daughter.

Det Insp O'Neill said a pathologist found that Sarah Hines had struggled to defend herself, but would have collapsed once she sustained knife wounds to her heart and lungs.

"It would be our belief that Alicia Brough walked in on the attack," said Det Insp O'Neill.

It is understood that Ms Hines was attempting to crawl away from Geary towards a sitting room when Ms Brough walked into the house.

He explained that Ms Brough sustained 14 to 16 wounds to various parts of her body.

Geary used a screwdriver to kill Reece, who was not related to him. He inflicted 15 wounds on the boy.

After murdering all four, Geary drank a glass of milk and changed his clothes before walking home.
