Irishman who gunned down Dan Smith on Costa del Sol gets 23 years

THE Irishman who gunned down Briton Dan Smith has been sentenced to 23 years in prison.

Eric ‘Lucky’ Wilson shot Smith seven times in the face and body after a row erupted outside the Lounge Bar, in Riviera in June 2010.

Dubliner Wilson – who was also convicted of the illegal possession of firearms – was ordered to pay 100,000 euros compensation to the victim’s family.

Wilson, 27, was arrested at his farm in Coin, less than 48 hours after the attack, and a search of the house found explosives, grenades and fake passports.

During the two-day trial a jury in Malaga was shown documents which suggested Wilson had also killed 11 people in Ireland.
