Britain’s youngest female murderer has lost an attempt to relax her prison regime after planning to split open another prisoner’s head and throw her down a flight of stairs.
Sharon Carr, who stabbed to death an 18-year-old woman in 1992 when she was just 12, has lost a legal battle to ease her strict prison restrictions.
Carr was named the Devil’s Daughter for her gruesome murder of stranger Katie Rackliff, in which she stabbed her 32 times.
Sharon Carr, who stabbed to death an 18-year-old woman in 1992 when she was just 12, has lost a legal battle to reduce prison restrictions
The murder was so cruel that the police hunted an adult man rather than a 12-year-old girl.
Since her arrest, she has spent much of her time in prison and will continue to do so.
Her request for more relaxed jail time was denied after it was discovered that Carr had fantasized about killing a fellow prisoner in the prion, according to The sun.
The Supreme Court judge, Mr. Julian Knowles, wrote: “[Carr] had revealed thoughts about trying to kill another resident by splitting her head open with a bottle and throwing her down the stairs to break her neck. ‘
Katie Rackliff was stabbed 32 times in June 1992 after Carr randomly attacked the hairdresser
Carr, now 40, was convicted of murder in 1997 after the schoolgirl randomly attacked hairdresser Katie when she walked home from a nightclub in June 1992.
She was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 12 years long passed.
However, the authorities consider her too unstable to be released from HMP Bronzefield in southwest London.
Carr limited the prisoner status she contested, but Mr Justice Knowles refused permission to seek judicial review.
This means that the killer now remains in a highly secured unit indefinitely.
Carr’s murder of Katie, whose parents Helen and Joseph are in the picture, was so cruel that the police hunted an adult man instead of a 12-year-old girl
Mr. Justice Knowles said the public would be in danger if she moved to a softer environment after hearing that Carr would “ form intense relationships with women who turned into violent fantasies when thwarted. ”
Two years after Carr’s murder in 1992, she attacked another schoolgirl with a knife in Camberley, Surrey.
While at a young perpetrator’s institute for the second knife attack, she tried to strangle two nurses and started bragging about killing Katie.
Police were called and she was convicted of the murder in March 1997.
