Timeline of Robin King
In 2008 he was brought to trial on charges of his involvement in the murder of Martin O’Hagan. Whilst Neil Hyde and fellow Lurgan LVF member Nigel William Leckey were charged with the murder itself King faced charges of perverting the course of justice by disposing of or concealing the getaway car that had been used in the killing. In July 2010 however charges against King and his co-defendants were withdrawn, after the evidence of a key prosecution witness was brought into question.
In 2007, during heightening tensions between members of the LVF and leading Belfast dissident loyalist Jackie Mahood, King announced that he had become a born-again Christian and stated that he was distancing himself from his LVF colleagues. It was the second time in three years that King had claimed to have embraced Christianity.
There were allegations in 2004 that he had carried on an affair with a female prison warder.
In 2003 King was the subject of a death threat from the UVF. This came hot on the heels of newspaper revelations about King’s Catholic birth, with the UVF referencing this by sending him six Easter mass cards (traditionally sent by Irish Catholics to the recently bereaved). King also received birthday card death threats with a Catholic message, as well as threats from republican groups.
According to the Daily Mirror King was the main rival to the leadership of Mark “Swinger” Fulton and just before the latter’s prison suicide King was preparing to wrest control of the LVF from him. King controlled the LVF in Lurgan whilst the Fultons dominated the movement in its traditional stronghold of Portadown. However, King felt that control should rest with the Lurgan faction and a loyalist feud broke out. As a result Gary Fulton, a cousin of Mark and William James Fulton and himself an important figure in the Portadown LVF, was attacked and savagely beaten by members of the Lurgan group in early 2002, being left with a broken leg as a result of the incident. It was reported that the attack had been in response to Gary Fulton attacking a Lurgan member who had been involved in the murder of journalist Martin O’Hagan.
During King’s imprisonment, another member of the LVF, David Keys, was killed in the jail on 15 March 1998. Keys, a 23-year-old living in Banbridge who had served with the Royal Irish Regiment and who had been shot and injured by the UVF in 1996 in his native Cregagh area of Belfast, was on remand for killing two friends in Poyntzpass. Initially treated as a suicide (Keys was found hanging with his wrists slashed), a post mortem revealed that he had been beaten severely about the body and injured on his hands and feet before being killed. Police speculated that Keys had been killed after the LVF became suspicious that he was co-operating with the police in their inquiries into the double murder. King was arrested and tried for Keys’ murder but acquitted in 2000.
In 1994, King was given a 16-year prison sentence for conspiracy to murder and sent to the Maze Prison. He was released after serving four and a half years of the sentence. Meanwhile, in 1996 Wright formed the breakaway Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF) after he and his Portadown unit were stood down by the UVF leadership following the unauthorised killing of taxi driver Michael McGoldrick by Wright’s men while the UVF were on ceasefire. King switched his allegiance to Wright’s new organisation. When Wright was gunned down inside the Maze by members of the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA), King assumed the role of Officer Commanding (OC) the LVF prisoners.
As a member of the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) which he had joined in the late 1980s, King was close to Billy Wright with whom he shares the same birthday. Wright took over as leader of the UVF Mid-Ulster Brigade during the early 1990s upon the retirement of Brigadier Robin Jackson. Wright was one of the few people within the UVF who knew about King’s Catholic origins. According to The People newspaper King was not the only former Catholic Wright admitted to his inner circle of associates despite having instilled widespread fear in the Catholic population. King served as the Mid-Ulster Brigade’s Director of Operations.
Robin Andrew “Billy” King, (born 7 July 1966) is a Northern Irish loyalist paramilitary leader who, despite having been born into a Catholic family, served as the commander of the Ulster Protestant Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF). A close friend of the organisation’s founder Billy Wright, King took over as leader following the death of Mark “Swinger” Fulton, who had succeeded Wright when he was assassinated by the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA) in December 1997.
King was born in Lurgan, County Armagh on 7 July 1966 to a Roman Catholic family, in which faith he was raised until the age of nine. He attended St. Paul’s Catholic primary school in the Ballymacbredan Road in Magheralin on the outskirts of Lurgan where he excelled as a Gaelic Athletic Association player and received a medal for his skill at Irish dancing. When he was nine years old, the family transferred to Waringstown in the wake of his mother’s conversion from Catholicism to the Church of Ireland (or Anglican) faith. He later became a loyalist which is typically associated with Northern Ireland’s Protestant community; however he kept his early Catholic background hidden from most of his loyalist friends.
