Baby P’s killer mother, 40, is FREED from prison for first time in seven years as she starts secret new life in bail hostel after government bid to keep her locked up was thrown out
- Connelly jailed at the Old Bailey in 2009 for causing or allowing death of her son
- Baby P had suffered more than 50 injuries despite being on the at-risk register
- In March, the Parole Board announced she had been cleared for release
The killer mother of Baby P has been freed from prison for the first time in seven years after a government bid to block her release was thrown out.
Tracey Connelly, who is now 40 and weighs more than 20 stone, was taken from HM Prison Low Newton in County Durham to start a secret new life in a bail hostel on Wednesday, according to The Sun.
The evil mother will be subject to 20 licence conditions, including having to wear an electronic tag and disclose all her relationships.
She will also have her Internet use monitored and be forced to obey a curfew.
In March, the Parole Board announced she had been cleared for release due to a low risk of reoffending.
But within hours Justice Secretary Dominic Raab vowed to block the move, describing the notorious case as ‘harrowing’.
Connelly was jailed for a minimum of five years in 2009, for causing or allowing the death of her tortured 17-month-old son Peter in a horrific case that shocked the nation.
Connelly was jailed at the Old Bailey in 2009 for causing or allowing the death of her 17-month-old son Peter at their home in Tottenham, north London , on August 3, 2007
Known publicly as Baby P, Peter (pictured) had suffered more than 50 injuries despite being on the at-risk register and receiving 60 visits from social workers, police officers and health professionals over eight months
She was released in 2013 but was recalled to prison in 2015 for selling naked photos of herself and breaching her licence conditions by ‘developing intimate personal relationships’ online.
Mr Raab said Connelly’s actions were ‘pure evil’ and added: ‘The decision to release her demonstrates why the parole board needs a fundamental overhaul – including a ministerial check for the most serious offenders – so that it serves and protects the public.’

Connelly’s lover Steven Barker was jailed in 2009 for a minimum of 32 years for torturing the 17-month-old to death while his brother, Jason Owen, received a six year jail sentence for allowing the toddler to die.
A series of reviews identified missed opportunities for officials to save the toddler’s life had they reacted properly to warning signs.
Three of the children, including Peter, were on Haringey’s Child Protection Register because of fears they were being neglected.

Connelly, who covered up the abuse of her son, was jailed indefinitely in 2009 for a minimum of five years after admitting causing or allowing the death of her son Peter.
She was then freed on licence in 2013 but later recalled to prison in 2015 after it was found she had sent indecent images of herself to people obsessed with her notoriety.
The Parole Board considered her case for a third time in November 2019, following previous reviews in 2015 and 2017, and refused to either release her or move her to an open prison.
In 2019, the convict launched a bid to be freed from prison so she could try to spend Christmas with her lover.
She became besotted with a 37-year-old insurance salesman named Paul and told fellow prisoners she want to move in with him in Reading.
The abuser said she believed she was ready to leave prison a ‘changed woman’.
Connelly insisted her relationship was genuine because she had known him for many years.
