Inquest into dad who killed girls

AN inquest will be held tomorrow into the death of a father who killed his two young daughters before killing himself, writes David Forsythe.

Unemployed construction worker John Butler died in a single vehicle accident in Ballycotton, Co Cork, on November 16 last year.

John's wife Una had left for work earlier in the morning leaving John to look after the couple's two daughters, Zoe (7) and Ella (2).

Two hours later she was contacted by gardai informing her that John had died and her two daughters were found dead lying together in a room in their home.
