CONVICTED killer Eamonn Lillis, who served five years for the murder of his wife, is now living in Fareham.

In 2008 Lillis was found in the garden of his Dublin home standing over the body of his wife, former James Bond girl Celine Cawley.

He was sentenced to six years and 11 months for manslaughter after initially claiming an intruder had attacked his wife.

Once a suitcase full of clothing stained with Ms Cawley’s blood was found in the attic he admitted to having a physical fight with her.

Lillis was released from jail in Dublin on Saturday when he flew to Southampton airport, followed by several Irish reporters.

He is now staying with his sister in Fareham where reporters have continued to try to speak to him.

Ms Cawley appeared in the 1985 film A View to A Kill.
