Angry inmates take swift revenge on Arthur's evil stepmother


ARTHUR LABINJO-HUGHES' stepmother, Emma Tustin, who tortured her stepson to death, has had her meals laced with salt by her cellmates in revenge for the abuse she carried out on the six-year-old.

A criminal justice system source added that Tustin had “salt thrown at her” by other inmates while on remand at HMP Peterborough for her trial.

An HMP Peterborough spokesman said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”


The 32-year-old was jailed for life with a minimum of 29 years behind bars after she was convicted of murdering Arthur at her home in Solihull, West Midlands.

His father, Thomas Hughes, was jailed for 21 years after being convicted of manslaughter for encouraging the killing, including sending a text message to Tustin hours before the fatal assault telling her “just end him”.

Tustin, from Solihull, West Midlands, tried to blame the injuries suffered by Arthur on himself. She lied to police officers who were responding to a 999 call about what had happened to him.

The grandfather of Arthur has said that the couple behind his death "must never see the light of day again".
