Savannah Brockhill, 28, is being housed in isolation at Cheshire’s HMP Styal women’s prison for her own protection because other prisoners in the jail have marked her their “number one” target, it has been reported
The “pure evil” stepmum who killed baby Star Hobson has been marked as a “number one target” in prison, it has been reported.
Cruel pub bouncer Savannah Brockhill, 28, is currently being housed alone in an isolation wing of Cheshire’s HMP Styal for her own safety.
Inmates at the 486-strong jail have already marked her as their prime target after she was sentenced to 25 years for murder at Bradford Crown Court this week, it has been claimed.
Brockhill killed the 16-month-old when months of sickening abuse culminated in a fatal “stamp or kick” to her abdomen at their home in Keighley, West Yorkshire.
Convicts will be “queuing up to try and shank her” for her heinous crime, a source reportedly said.
Brockhill’s lesbian lover and Star’s mum, Frankie Smith, was also sent down for eight years for allowing the murder to happen.
A source told MailOnline : “Brockhill has been put in separation in Styal for her own protection.
“She’ll be the number one target there. Prisoners will be queuing up to try and shank her.”
Violent inmates craft “shanks”, a homemade knife, out of everyday items they have access to in prison.
Both Smith and Brockhill, a pub bouncer, were sentenced to their respective terms earlier this week.
An MP suggested on Thursday that Smith’s sentence could be made longer.
Health minister Gillian Keegan today said Smith’s sentence “doesn’t sound enough” and suggested Attorney General Suella Braverman could send the case for review.
Speaking to LBC about Star’s case, Ms Keegan said: “It doesn’t sound enough, as a human being, it doesn’t sound enough.
“It’s a shocking, shocking case – I mean, it’s quite unbelievable.
“And also the case of poor Arthur (Labinjo-Hughes) as well. I mean, it’s just unbelievable.
“I mean, obviously the judge and the jury have made their… they recently passed the sentence but, you know, I guess the Attorney General has that power as well. So I don’t know…”
She added: “It doesn’t fit within my remit but it fits within hers (the Attorney General’s), so I’m sure that she’ll be having those conversations.”
A spokesperson for the Attorney General’s Office said: “We have received a request for these sentences to be considered under the unduly lenient sentence (ULS) scheme.
“The law officers have 28 days from sentencing to consider the case and make a decision.”
Tiny Star was taken to hospital on September 22, 2020, but the injuries she had suffered were “utterly catastrophic” and “unsurvivable”.
The great grandparents of adorable girl – who at one point had sole custody of the child old before she went back to her mother and her “psycho” lesbian lover – said the toddler had been “dragged down to hell”.
Star, known as “little baby blue eyes” by her besotted great grandparents, suffered fatal catastrophic injuries likened to a car crash victim after enduring months of abuse .
She was killed despite five different people warning social services her life was in danger.
A post mortem revealed Star had been repeatedly physically assaulted over the weeks and months before her death. She also had 38 existing separate external injuries, including bruises, cuts, swelling and two rib fractures.
She had two breaks to the right tibia or shin bone caused by forceful twisting. The mending bone had recently been re-fractured and Star had been limping in the weeks before her death.
Star also had 12 cm “crazy paving” style fracture to the back of the skull caused days before her death.
