Baby P's mum Tracey Connelly offers to take lie detector test in bid to be freed from jail

THE evil mum of tortured Baby P has offered to take a lie detector test in a desperate bid to be freed from jail.

Tracey Connelly, who was jailed over the death of little Peter Connelly, made the offer as she again prepares a fresh parole bid.

Connelly was jailed in 2009 over the harrowing death of her 17-month-old son Peter.

The heartless mother let her toddler – initially dubbed Baby P by the courts – suffer fatal abuse at the hands of lover Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen.

She was released back on the streets in 2013 but was recalled just 18 months later for selling indecent photos of herself to pervs online.

The hulking monster is now expected to tell Parole Board bosses that she will take any test as proof she won't reoffend and suffer any restrictions on her movement just as long as she is released from prison.

The mother – banged up in top security Low Newton prison in County Durham – is also expected to promise she won't access  the internet or be around children without permission by probation officers.

Connelly has said she’ll do anything asked of her to win her freedom

Lie detectors are not used by the police or courts to determine guilt but they are used on the most serious sex offenders once they are freed to ensure they are sticking to the terms of their release.

A source said: “Connelly has said she’ll do anything asked of her to win her freedom. She’ll take a lie detector test once she is freed, forego access to the internet, live where she’s told – anything to get out of prison.”

The Parole Board confirmed that they have received an application from Connelly and a date for an oral hearing where she will give evidence in person is being arranged.

But if she fails to convince the board she is no longer a danger to the public, she’ll be in jail for another two years as inmates can only apply every 24 months.

Her previous attempts to be released in 2015 and 2017 were both blocked.

Campaign of abuse: What happened to Baby P?

LITTLE Peter Connelly was born to mum Tracey Connelly in March 2006 and died at her Tottenham home after suffering a catalogue of injuries on August 3, 2007.

Two months after Peter's birth Connelly started a relationship with Steven Barker at whose hands the tot would suffer appalling abuse.

Peter was admitted to hospital with injuries on several occasions and his mum was twice arrested.

But a day after Tracey was told she would not face prosecution, the 17-month-old was found dead in a blood-stained cot.

Peter had suffered more than 50 injuries over eight months and had been seen by a string of social workers, the Metropolitan Police and health professionals.

They all missed warning signs that could have saved the toddler's life – with it later being revealed that the tot's devious carers had smeared him with chocolate before visits to hide bruises and cuts.

The abuse included repeatedly choking the 17-month-old until he turned blue and encouraging a Rottweiler to attack him.

A post-mortem examination later revealed that he had probably already suffered a broken back and fractured ribs

A court ruled that Baby P died at the hands of his mother, her boyfriend Steven Barker, and his brother Jason Owen – who had moved into their home with a 15 year old girl.

The mother is also expected to claim a new fling with an old friend means she is fit for release.

She is said to have started a new relationship and hopes that will help her application.

It comes after her then boyfriend Barker was jailed for 12 years for what the judge said was his "major role" in Peter's brutal death.

He was released in 2011 but was later recalled to prison.

The helpless child suffered more than fifty injuries inflicted over an eight-month campaign of torture.

During that time little Peter was seen by hapless NHS medics and child welfare officials from the London Borough of Haringey.

A Parole Board spokesman said: "We can confirm that a panel of the ParoleBoard has directed the parole review for Tracey Connelly should be considered at an oral hearing.

"At this time no date has been set for an oral hearing. We are unable to comment further on the individual details of this case."
