Aaron Campbell (pictured), 20, who raped and murdered six-year-old Alesha MacPhail in 2018, was left with his ‘front tooth through his lip’ after being jumped in his cell at Polmont Young Offenders near Falkirk, Scotland on Wednesday.
A ‘ruthless’ child killer who raped and murdered a six-year-old girl has been hospitalized after being brutally assaulted by a fellow inmate.
Aaron Campbell, 20, was left with his ‘front tooth through his lip’ after being jumped in his cell at the Polmont Young Offenders Institute near Falkirk, Scotland on Wednesday.
The Devil was reportedly an immediate target after being sent to the infamous institution for mercilessly snatching little Alesha MacPhail from her bed in July 2018.
Warped Campbell left the battered body of the child – who had 117 injuries – in the grounds of a dilapidated hotel.
He was sentenced to 27 years after a nine-day trial at the High Court in Glasgow in February 2019 – reduced to 24 years on appeal.
His attacker was hailed as a hero by inmates this week after being dragged by Campbell prison guards. Sun†
He gained access to the killer, who was too scared to leave his cell, after his door was left slightly open during the meal.
Alesha’s great-grandfather George Lochrane, 79, said of the attack: “I hope he’s in pain. I hope he suffers.

“The only thing I regret is that I couldn’t do it myself.”
A prison source told the Sun that “everyone” in detention is “happy” and that the staff “made sly comments that he deserved it.”
They said the attacker pushed Campbell onto his bed and “got quite a few punches in it.”
The source added: “He is normally kept separate from everyone here because everyone wants to hang him.
“They’d kill him if they could because of what he did to that little girl.
“But there was a brief chance of getting hold of him and the boy took it. He could face a serious charge, but it doesn’t bother him, he says it was worth it.’
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Prison Service said: ‘We do not comment on individual inmates.’

At his sentencing more than three years ago, Judge Lord Matthews described Campbell as a “cold, callous, calculating, ruthless and dangerous” individual, who could only be released if “a lot of work” was done to change him.
Alesha, from Airdrie, was on vacation with relatives when Campbell kidnapped and killed her.
Polmont is Scotland’s national detention facility for male juvenile offenders between the ages of 16 and 21, with sentences ranging from six months to life.
A former inmate who turned his life around – and spent time in several other Scottish prisons – last year said Polmont was “traumatic” and “worse than any adult prison I’ve ever been in.”
It came after five inmates died by suicide in just four years.
“I was in Polmont as a young man and it was the most violent, humiliating and mentally challenging environment I’ve ever experienced – and that includes the adult prisons I’ve been in since,” he told the newspaper. Sunday Post†
