    The ex-boyfriend of Star Hobson’s mother said today he was haunted over questions over whether he could have done more to save her.

    Pete Penman, 24, had been seeing Frankie Smith, 20, on and off before she met Savannah Brockhill, 28, the woman who would become her girlfriend and kill her daughter.

    He said he had begged her to leave her and tell social workers what self-declared ‘Number one psycho’ Brockhill was doing.
