Constable Carroll's widow's 'pity' for murderers

The widow of the first PSNI officer to be murdered has spoken of her "pity" for his killers.

Kate Carroll said that dissident republicans were "fighting a losing battle" against the peace process.

Brendan McConville, 40, of Glenholme Avenue, Craigavon, and John Paul Wootton, 20, of Collindale, Lurgan, were found guilty of Constable Stephen Carroll's murder on Friday.

The 48-year-old was shot dead in Craigavon on 9 March 2009.

On Friday night, there were disturbances in the area where PC Carroll was killed, with vehicles hijacked and set on fire.
