Mother brands war hero's killer 'pure evil'

THE mother of a murdered Iraq war hero has branded her son's killer as "pure evil".

Barry McGrory, 28, was found guilty on Wednesday of stabbing Scots Guardsman Paul McGee to death last October. Anne McGee, 54, yesterday described her son as a "true hero" and said justice had been done following the conviction.

Guardsman McGee, who was decorated for bravery in Iraq, was killed after a night out with his mother, his girlfriend and her mother on 25 October.

He was attacked outside the McGee family home in Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire, after going to the aid of a taxi driver who was subjected to a road rage assault by co-accused Ian Wallace.

Mrs McGee said: "Paul was a true hero in every sense. He served his country in Iraq and Northern Ireland, only to be murdered back home by pure evil."
