A MONSTER has murdered her lover’s daughter wanting to shave all her hair “like a gypsy baby”, heartbreaking relatives revealed today.
Savannah Brockhill, 28, crushed 16-month-old Star Hobson to death after conducting a brutal campaign of emotional and physical abuse against her.
The person who answered sneered now imprisoned for life for a minimum period of 25 years after being convicted of murder.
Star’s mother, 20-year-old Frankie Smith, has been detained for eight years for causing or allowing the death of a child.
Youngster David Fawcett’s great-grandfather has now revealed how he saw Brockhill perform “kickboxing” moves on the Star.
David, who complained to social services before the tragic death, told Good Morning Britain: “Savannah was choking – some moves they do in kickboxing or karate or something – and she did throw Star on the bed.
“Then, a day or so later, we received word that she was going to shave all of her hair. She wanted to. [Star] like a gypsy baby and mother holding her baby on the crib with one leg.
“So that’s when Anita said ‘I’ve had enough, I’m going to call social services and try and work this out. “
A protective practice review has been launched into Star’s death, which comes just weeks after the gruesome murder of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.
In a chilling aftermath of the six-year-old’s death, there were five chances to save Star but the family’s concerns were ignored by social workers and the police.
Boris Johnson vowed that action would be taken to prevent such “shocking and heartbreaking” tragedies in the future.
During a lengthy trial, jurors endured unpleasant footage of Star severely bruised with swollen cheeks and marks on her forehead.
They also watched chilling clips of pub waiter Brockhill punching and slapping Star with “significant force” 21 times over a three-hour period.
The brutal attack took place in her car – with the blows causing Star to fall out of the car at one point.
The crying little girl can also be seen in pain climbing the stairs while breaking her shin as both women forced her to walk.
In another “unsettling and weird” clip, Star is filmed from her high chair and falling to the floor while music is playing on top.
The pair of monsters also caught the boy so exhausted that he fell asleep in the food bowl.
On September 22 of last year, paramedics ran to the home to find Star lifeless, pale and wearing only a diaper.
She went into cardiac arrest, and when they attempted CPR, Star vomited up “a large amount” of brown matter.
Star was taken to the hospital but sadly could not be saved and was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
A 16-month-old girl died in hospital from acute blood loss after the inferior vena cava – the largest vein in the body – was torn.
Medics said her injuries are usually seen only in car crash victims and are caused by “punches, kicks or stamps”.
Prosecutor Alistair MacDonald QC said: “The reality is that the injuries Star suffered were so dire that there was never any real chance of saving her life.”
When questioned by police, Brockhill alleged that the injury was caused by a two-year-old child, which the prosecution called “absurd”.
Instead, Medics said the “level of force” inflicted on Star was “so great” that “doctors could not imagine it could have been caused by a child”.
“The effects of such injuries are immediate and bleed profusely into the abdominal cavity, causing a severe drop in blood pressure, unconsciousness and death within seconds to minutes,” said Mr MacDonald.
“The assault or assault that killed Star clearly involved the use of serious force and was clearly intentional. This little girl did not die by accident. “
Doctors also discovered a number of “significant injuries” the baby had suffered “at various times in his short life”.
This included two fractures of the right shin bone “due to strong twisting”, one fractured skull and one old traumatic brain injury.
In total, she had 15 separate head injuries and 10 bruises on her legs, ankles, feet and toes.
David stoned Brockhill after the ruling was made after it was revealed that his wife asked social services: “Do you want another baby P?”
He said: “To me, she was just a badass. I just couldn’t believe she could do something like that to a little girl.
“We’re just a lovely, peaceful family and she came up from hell on earth and completely devastated and ruined our family.
“It’s disgusting because there were five people introduced. Not a single one of them did anything.”
“It’s just beyond belief, really.”
