Star Hobson’s ‘hard’ killer terrified fellow prisoner with sick bragging of ‘buried babies’

The woman who murdered the tragic toddler Star Hobson after months of abuse is said to have shocked fellow prisoners with allegations that there were “three more babies” buried near her home.

It writes The Mirror on the seemingly sick joke that a former prison friend claims to have heard killer Savannah Brockhill, 28, mark.

Amy Louise Cowan, who was released this week from HMP Styal in Cheshire, where she had been locked up with Brockhill, said Sunday people : “Savannah is cold and hard. I’ve never seen her cry. ”

The 29-year-old cleaned Brockhill’s wing on New Year’s Day when she claims she heard the scary words.

She said: “Savannah said there were three more babies buried in a field behind her house.”

Amy added, “She said she was tired of inmates kicking her door down and spitting her food in, and that she didn’t care anymore.”

Brockhill, a former security guard, was jailed for at least 25 years last month after being found guilty of murdering Star after months of abuse at their home in Keighley, West Yorks.

Totten’s mother, Frankie Smith, 20, was jailed for eight years for causing or allowing her daughter’s death after she began a relationship with the evil Brockhill.

And Amy claimed Brockhill was angry when Smith – who stood next to and watched her lover’s brutal treatment of Star – was sentenced to her sentence. She said: “Savannah is angry that Frankie only got eight years – she says it’s not okay.”

Meanwhile, Amy claimed that the killer Brockhill continues to refer to Star as “my girl” despite the physical and mental torture she exhibited, which ended with the tot bleeding to death from a horrific blow to her stomach.

She said, “She would say things like, ‘I miss my girl, I did everything for her,’ and that she would never intentionally hurt her.

“Then other times she would say she had been jealous of Star and blamed her for creating problems between her and Frankie.”

Amy, who was jailed for 18 months at Burnley Crown Court in April last year for theft and threats against a person with a sharp object or blade, was released on license this week.

She claims she got to know Brockhill well when they trained together at Styal while the killer was in custody before the trial.

“We spent pretty much every day for months in the gym, playing badminton and working out together,” Amy said.

“The day she was convicted, she made a strange comment that she would shout ‘We are Spartans’.

“When she came into the wing, I never heard the prison so loud in my entire life.

“They kicked at her door and spat her food in, and eventually she went on hunger strike and was moved to the separation unit for her safety. I told her we could never be friends, but she still trusted me.”

The Justice Department declined to comment on Amy’s allegations.
