THE sister of jailed double-killer Wayne Kinsella says she hopes her brother never sees the outside of a prison cell again.

Kinsella (40), of The Plaza, Tyrrelstown, Dublin, but originally from Finglas, is currently behind bars for life for the murder of dad-of-five Adil Essalhi (31), who he butchered and dumped in a field in west Dublin in 2011.

Psycho Kinsella previously served an eight-year sentence for the manslaughter of retired auctioneer Thomas Foreman (86), who he attacked as the pensioner was visiting the grave of his wife Ellen and first child in Glasnevin cemetery in September 1995.

Strangle

Speaking yesterday, Kinsella's sister Donna said Wayne was always an "extremely violent person" who had tried to strangle a puppy his father bought for the family as a child.

She also told of how he beat members of the family and broke her jaw, and once threw her three-year-old son into a river.

"Everybody knows right from wrong and not to take somebody's life. He was just always extremely violent, and it didn't matter what anyone did for him, it made no difference. It was like he had no soul, like he had no remorse," Donna told Joe Duffy's Liveline show.

"He should never be released. He should never even be allowed to breathe fresh air. I know it's not a nice thing to say, but that's the way the whole family think about him," she added.

Donna Kinsella was responding to comments by the mother of Adil Essalhi, Geraldine, who says she is suffering financially because the Criminal Injuries Board can't pay a €35,000 award to Adil's family until next year.

Gardai believe Kinsella brutally murdered Essalhi because he wrongly thought he had been responsible for the murder of his brother Lee Kinsella, who was shot dead in Finglas in May, 2006.

Geraldine described how Adil was an innocent man who had befriended Kinsella –who once dated Scissor Sister Linda Mulhall – in a pub in January 2011.

"He (Adil) was completely innocent. He met Kinsella in town, went to a party with him, went missing and was found the following Thursday in a field in Tyrrelstown. He couldn't be ID'd he was that badly murdered."

She described the trial of Kinsella as horrific.

"He showed no remorse whatsoever. He gloated and boasted about killing my son," Geraldine said.

Donna Kinsella said she felt sorry for Geraldine. "I feel sorry for the simple reason that she's after losing her son," she said.

Buried

After being released from jail for the manslaughter of Thomas Foreman, who had spent every Saturday for 21 years visiting the grave where his wife Ellen and their first child were buried, Kinsella went on to kill Essalhi.

Donna said she had rung gardai to tell them her brother might have been involved in Essalhi's death.

She said her family had suffered heartache recently when another brother died in recent months after an accident.

"He fell off a ladder and fractured his skull, and he died in his sleep," she said.
