Savannah Brockhill found guilty of murdering 16-month-old Star Hobson, who endured months of assaults and psychological harm.

Savannah Brockhill was found guilty of murdering 16-month-old Star Hobson by a jury who heard that the youngster endured months of assaults and psychological harm before suffering “utterly catastrophic” injuries in her home in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

Savannah Brockhill has branded herself as "the number one psycho" in a Snapchat story which has now been made public.

Brockhill, 28, was the partner of Star’s mother, Frankie Smith, 20, who cried as she was cleared of murder at Bradford Crown Court on Tuesday but was convicted of causing or allowing the toddler’s death.

Savannah Brockhill, 28, is seen and heard in the snapchat video making threatening messages to the "guys and girls" who had sent friend requests to her partner Frankie Smith.

Savannah Brockhill said: "She's not going to accept, especially tramps like you, and if you want to keep your kneecaps I suggest you stop sending her them."

She then turns to Frankie, seen in the background, and ends the video with a smile.

The video featured text, with emojis of a red cross, a knife and a bomb. The text read: "I am a psycho when it comes to my girlfriend, and wouldn't mind putting anyone in a chair for the rest of their life if they as much as look at her wrongly. Keep safe, don't message my girlfriend".

Speaking outside court, Star’s great-grandfather David Fawcett said: “I’m just pleased we got a murder conviction for Savannah Brockhill.

“To me she was just pure evil. I just can’t believe she could do something like that to a baby girl.He said: “We were just a quiet, lovely family and she ascended from the bowels of hell and just completely devastated and wrecked our family.”

Mr Fawcett’s partner, Anita Smith, 70, was one of five people who reported concerns about Star to social services in the months leading up to her death on September 22 2020.
