The amateur boxer convicted of murdering her 16-month-old stepdaughter by stomping and punching her to death is said to be the “number one target” in prison, with fellow inmates “queuing up to stab her,” according to the Daily Mail. Savannah Brockhill, 28, was sentenced to life in prison this week for the death of her partner Frankie Smith’s daughter Star Hobson in September 2020. Her crimes against the child were so brutal, in fact, that Brockhill is being held in isolation at HMP Styal for her own safety.

- The jail has a population of 486 and every one of them wants to hurt Brockhill. A source told MailOnline that prison authorities were forced to separate her from the general population because she’s the biggest target there. “Prisoners will be queuing up to try and shank her,” the source said.
- HMP Styal is no vacation home. While the prison is set up between 16 detached Victorian houses and the conditions are said to be “generally acceptable,” the facilities do have mold and ventilation problems and many prisoners suffer from severe mental health issues.
- It’s not just Brockhill who’s a target. After she was arrested and remanded in custody, the home address of her sister was published rather than her own, leading her sister and a man named John Crawley being violently assaulted. Crawley ended up with a fractured skull. Other members of Brockhill’s family have been threatened and intimidated as well as having their homes damaged.
- Brockhill has never shown remorse for what she did to star. In fact, she waved and smiled at her family while in court and never expressed any sorrow or acknowledgement of having taken the little girl’s life. It’s no wonder she has been sentenced to life in prison and must serve a minimum of 25 years before she’s even eligible for parole. However, given the severity of her crimes, it’s unlikely she will ever be released (nor should she be).
