An English woman identified as Emma Tustin has been jailed for life after she was convicted of murdering her step-son Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.

The 32-year-old woman was locked up for at least 29 years after being found guilty of the six-year-old’s murder earlier this month.

Arthur was said to have suffered an unsurvivable brain injury during a violent attack at her hands

Emma according to the source has been placed on self-isolation even she stays in prison, she has been placed as a vulnerable prisoner which forbids her from making contact with other prisoners, eating with them or washing her items with them.

Details from an HMP Peterborough, where she is being held, revealed that she is seen as a ‘massive target’ for other lags and ‘every effort is being made to protect her from attack’, adding: ‘It’s only a matter of time before someone takes a chance to do her in.

Tustin was jailed alongside Arthur’s dad Thomas Hughes, 29, who was given a 21-year sentence after being convicted of manslaughter.

Jurors heard the youngster suffered a catastrophic brain injury after being violently attacked by Tustin when she was supposed to be looking after him.

Hughes was found to have encouraged and ‘relished’ in Arthur’s abuse, cruelly ripping up his beloved Birmingham City football shirts and buying ice creams for him and Tustin while he starved.

The senior judge who oversaw the trial said it was ‘without doubt one of the most distressing and disturbing cases I have had to deal with’.
