Savannah Brockhill, 28, was jailed for a minimum of 25 years for the murder of her ex’s toddler, Star Hobson, who died from a series of catastrophic injuries.
Baby killer Savannah Brockhill received more than £10,000 of taxpayers’ money for a solicitor before spending £9,000 of her own money on a Rolex.
Savannah Brockhill, 28, was jailed for a minimum of 25 years for the murder of her ex’s young son, Star Hobson.
Star’s mother, 20-year-old Frankie Smith, was convicted of allowing her daughter’s death and jailed for just eight years.
Evil Brockhill was given £10,290.24 to pay for a solicitor, the Justice Ministry confirmed to The Sun.
While the money did not go directly to Brockhill but was received directly by the solicitors, after spending just a month in jail the killer spent a separate £9,000 on a luxury watch and has been flaunting life on his dresser. cell, states the publication.
Brockhill has his own prison room with a television and private bathroom, as well as a pastoral view from his window.
Prison sources also say that Brockhill now has a twisted fan club of people who write to him with messages of support.
A prison source told The Daily Star Sunday: “It’s a sad reflection on society that some members of the public enjoy writing to a killer like this, and even rewarding her with gifts. Many are from fans.”
“It really is unbelievable, but Savannah is said to love attention and almost considers herself a celebrity and prison pin-up.”
Brockhill, a boxer who called herself “the number one psychopath”, also boasted that she had “buried three more babies” in sick pranks on her cellmates.

One said they had never seen Brockhill shed a tear after his conviction for the murder of Star, who died with catastrophic injuries.
The judge at the seven-week trial at Bradford Crown Court before Christmas had observed that Star was “caught in the crossfire” of the narcissistic and on-and-off relationship between the couple who were supposed to be caring for her.
The boy’s “short life was marked by neglect, cruelty and injury,” Judge Lambert said, addressing the two defendants sitting separately in the dock.
Star died after Brockhill kicked or punched her in the stomach with the full force of a crashing car, according to a medical expert.
While trying to save his life, doctors also discovered that he had suffered other serious injuries, including fractures to his skull and ribs, and a leg that was broken twice.
Brockhill and Smith would force the girl to face the wall despite being so weak that she could barely stand while they filmed the abuse of her.
Brockhill set a clip of Star jumping out of a chair and hitting her head to music and sending it to her friends with the caption, “I laughed so hard.”
Under the early release system, Smith could be free when he turns 24, although the Attorney General has ordered a review of his sentence.
While her former partner, whom she met on a night out in Bradford in 2019, plans to appeal her conviction on the grounds that it was Smith who actually delivered the fatal blow on September 22, 2020 at her flat in Keighley, West Yorkshire.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Justice said: “Offenders do not receive a penny of legal assistance, payments are assessed and sent directly to the lawyers and solicitors representing them to ensure a fair trial.
“Without legal representation, criminals could argue that their trial was unfair and convictions could be overturned.”
