  • Connelly jailed in 2009 for causing or allowing 17-month-old son Peter’s death

Tracey Connelly, 40, was jailed indefinitely with a minimum term of five years in 2009 for causing or allowing her 17-month-old son Peter’s death

Baby P’s mother could be released from prison within weeks if she agrees to undergo frequent lie detector tests to prove she is not reoffending, it has been reported.

Tracey Connelly, 40, who was jailed indefinitely with a minimum term of five years in 2009 for causing or allowing her 17-month-old son Peter’s death, could be cleared for release at her fourth parole hearing if she agrees to a series of terms. 

Connelly will have to take frequent lie detector tests to prove she is not reoffending and stay away from drugs or alcohol.

She will also have to agree to give details of any relationships she forms in order to shorten her sentence.

If she is not successful at her next parole hearing Connelly will remain in prison until 2023. 

A source told The Daily Star: ‘Connelly has said she’ll do anything asked of her to win freedom.

‘She’s been undergoing psychological courses in prison to address her offending and believes she will be successful this time. 

Peter, who was publicly known as Baby P, died in 2007 at the hands of his mother, her lover Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen

‘Tracey’s prepared to wear a tag 24/7, stay sober and submit to giving details of any relationships she forms. She’ll also be happy to take lie detector tests.’ 

Peter, who was publicly known as Baby P, died in north London on August 3 2007 at the hands of his mother, her lover Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen.

He suffered more than 50 injuries, which included a snapped spine and eight broken ribs, despite being on the at-risk register and receiving 60 visits from social workers, police and health professionals over the final eight months of his life.

Steven Barker was jailed in 2009 for a minimum of 32 years for torturing the 17-month-old to death and Owen received a six year jail sentence for allowing the toddler to die.

Peter and three other children were sharing the four-bedroom house with their mother, her boyfriend and his brother when he died. 

Three of the children, including Peter, were on Haringey’s Child Protection Register because of fears they were being neglected by the mother. 

Connolly, who covered up the abuse of her son, was jailed 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. 

No remorse: Baby P’s monster mother bakes cakes in jail

In this letter written from jail in 2017, Connelly dismisses her involvement in her son’s death and details friendship with mass murderer Rose West.

‘I trusted Barker so much we got together (he is five years older than me) then bang, him and Owen did what they did and now I’m here!!… I’m a good person who got stuck in a f***d up situation.’

‘I don’t hear from the c***s (Barker and Owen). I hate them so much. I hope they never contact me again. They can rot in hell.’ 

‘I’ve been single since I came to prison. I’m still married by law but my solicitor told me the other week that my husband has asked for a divorce. I was so happy I baked a cake. I’m in no need to have another relationship because I think I need to find out who I am. 

‘It is good that my friends have stood by me. These people choose to be at my side in my darkest of hours. After all that has been said about me yet they’re still there. With their support, I hope to come out of this situation a lot stronger.’ 

‘Me and Rose live on the same wing, she is teaching me how to cook (better food instead of junk) and we play Scrabble. People said we were in a relationship but where they got the idea I’m a lesbian is beyond me! It’s a shame people believe that rubbish.’

‘I’m not sure I will get married again. I can’t see me trusting anyone enough for a long while. It would be nice to put my past behind me and have a fresh start.’
