A mother who brutally murdered her daughter has now been given a taste of it in prison.

23-year-old Kathryn Smith was found guilty back in April of murdering her daughter by punching her in the chest.

The 21-month-old girl’s words as her mother and father beat were, “Stop mummy, stop daddy,” according to neighbors back in May of 2014.

She’d suffered a tear to her heart from trauma caused by blows to her chest.

She’d been hit with so much force that she’d bitten through her own tongue.

Ms. Smith, who’s now serving 24 years, was attacked by two inmates in a stairwell which didn’t have video surveillance. Ten other inmates watched it unfold.

She’s said to have howled in pain as she was punched and stabbed with a homemade knife during the attack which lasted roughly four minutes. It left her with a cut that was nearly an inch long across her cheek.

“There had been a lot of talk about attacking Smith, but most people wouldn’t go through with it as they don’t want time added on to their sentences,” a source who witnessed the attack said. “But these two really went for it and left her in a bad way.”

“No one had any sympathy for Smith. Some staff were saying, ‘What goes around comes around.’”

A prison official denied that a weapon was used against her, and claims disciplinary action has been taken against her attackers.
