Evil child killer Savannah Brockhill was reportedly saved by medics in prison twice as she waited for her trial.

The great-grandad of murdered tot Star Hobson says her 28-year-old killer should have been left to die on her prison cell floor after suffering two heart attacks.

Instead, with the shocking Bradford Crown Court trial just days away, the self-described "psycho" was revived by HMP Styal medics who performed CPR after finding her face down, The Sun reports.

Little Star was killed in September 2020 following months of child abuse, including a flurry of "stamps or kicks" to the abdomen from Brockhill.

Her injuries were so horrific that they are typically only seen in fatal car crashes, the Mirror reports.

The little girl's great-grandfather Frank Smith, 68, said the prison responders should have let Brockhill die.

He told the Sun on Sunday: “I wish they had let her die. Star’s injuries were so horrific they couldn’t revive her.

"And yet, Brockhill is saved. How unfair is that?”

The 28-year-old returned to HMP Styal after discharging herself against the advice of medical professionals, sources told The Sun.

The Daily Star has approached prison officials for comment.

Star's mum, Frankie Smith, 20, was jailed for eight years for allowing the killing to take place.

But an MP said she thinks the sentence was too lenient and "not enough" as she suggested her term could be extended.

Health minister Gillian Keegan this week said Smith's sentence “doesn't sound enough” and suggested Attorney General Suella Braverman could send the case for review.

Star's heartbroken dad has said he will never recover from the "callous and cruel" way she was killed in her Keighley, West Yorkshire home.

Jordan Hobson paid an emotional tribute to his "beautiful baby daughter".

In a statement released through police, Mr Hobson said: "The horrific death of my beautiful baby daughter has left me devastated and I will never recover from the callous and cruel way in which Star was taken from me.

"No sentence that a court can impose will ever bring back my precious daughter.

"I would now request privacy so that I can start to grieve and begin to try and pick up the pieces of my life.""

The killing of Star and details of how she was subjected to months of assaults and psychological harm have caused an outcry, especially as the trial came so soon after the case of murdered Solihull six-year-old Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.

Star's great-grandfather, David Fawcett, has led the questioning over why social services and police did not act despite five different family members and friends raising concerns with the authorities in the eight months before she died.

After she was found guilty of murder on Tuesday, Brockhill was branded "pure evil" by Mr Fawcett, who said she had "ascended from the bowels of hell".

On Wednesday, Brockhill was given a life sentence and ordered to serve a minimum of 25 years before she can be considered for parole, by the judge, Mrs Justice Lambert.
