Star was just 16 months old when she was killed by her mother’s partner, Savannah Brockhill, 28, in September 2020.
In a statement, Star’s father Jordan Hobson said: “The horrific death of my beautiful baby daughter has left me devastated and I will never recover from the callous and cruel way in which Star was taken from me.
“No sentence that a court can impose will ever bring back my precious daughter.
“I would now request privacy so that I can start to grieve and begin to try and pick up the pieces of my life.”
