Stacy Banner, whose mother and sister were killed by John Lowe, wept in court after the 25 year sentence was handed down.
A woman in the public gallery then shouted: "What about all the animals he's killed?"
Delivering his sentence, Mr Justice Singh said Lowe "lost his temper" when he took out his shotgun on February 23 to kill Christine Lee.
"She died of a single shot wound to the chest fired at close range from above," the judge said.
"Lucy was able to use her mobile phone to make a frantic and desperate call to the emergency services on 999.
"She said that you had shot her mum and that she feared that you were going to shoot her as well.
"Nevertheless, in an act of extraordinary courage, she went back to see if there was anything she could do to help her mother."
Lowe, dressed in a plaid jacket, shirt and tie, with his white hair combed back, had earlier grinned at his supporters in the public gallery as he entered the dock for the sentencing.
He then waved as he returned to his cell when the hearing was briefly adjourned.
Lowe was found guilty of two counts of murder and a third of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.
