Rapist child killer battered in jail as grandad says: I hope hes in pain

A twisted child rapist who snatched a little girl from her bed and killed her has been beaten up in jail with his assailant hailed a hero.

Aaron Campbell, 20, was left with his "tooth through his lip" as a result of the attack, which took place in his cell at Polmont Young Offenders on Wednesday, according to a source, as reported by The Sun.

"Cold, calculating, remorseless and dangerous" Campbell, who murdered six-year-old schoolgirl Alesha MacPhail when he was a teenager, was described as "completely lacking in victim empathy" by a judge.

Responding to news of the attack, Alesha's great-grandad George Lochrane, 79 said: “I hope he’s in pain. I hope he’s suffering.

“The only thing I’m sorry about is that I didn’t get to do it myself.”

Campbell was given a life sentence with a minimum term of 27 years and was told by presiding judge, Lord Matthews he had committed "some of the most wicked and evil crimes this court has ever heard of in decades of dealing with depravity."

His prison attacker, who had to be pulled off him during the beating, was hailed as a hero by his fellow inmates.

A prison source said that opportunity knocked when Campbell had left his cell door open.

The assailant is said to have pushed unsuspecting Campbell onto his bed and started the attack, getting "a good few shots in."

Campbell's front tooth was left "sticking through his lip" and left "everyone in the prison happy" about the attack, said the source.

Normally kept separate from the other lags because of his notoriety and his sickening crime, Campbell is due to be moved to an adult prison when he turns 21 next year.

Campbell's attacker may face a serious assault charge but is "not bothered as it was worth it," according to the source.

On July 2, 2018 Campbell snatched little Alesha from her bed before raping and murdering her.

In 2019, Campbell successfully appealed his sentence, reducing the minimum term to 24 years, and will be eligible for parole when he is 40.
