Three brothers from hell

These are the three brothers from hell -- two killers and one a suspected hitman.

Two of the men, Eric and Keith Wilson from Ballyfermot in Dublin, are now suspected of being involved in over ten gun murders between them.

Keith Wilson (23) was today beginning a life term in jail for the gangland execution of hitman-for-hire Daniel Gaynor in August, 2010.

His brother Eric 'Lucky' Wilson (27) is serving 23 years in a Spanish prison for the murder of British criminal Daniel Smith in a packed bar on the Costa del Sol.

Their older brother John (34) was released from garda custody in September after being arrested by officers probing a shooting at the Players Lounge pub in July, 2010, which left three innocent men with serious injuries.

John -- who has survived three assassination attempts -- showed up every day at Keith's dramatic murder trial.

Yesterday's conviction is being hailed as a major breakthrough in the fight against organised criminal activity in Dublin.
