A chef accused of murdering his 22-month-old stepdaughter is "strongly suspected" of punching the toddler, a court heard.

Erin Tomkins died of multiple injuries at Sheffield Children's Hospital shortly after midnight on 22 May 2018.

Martin Johnson, 20, from Sheffield, denies murder and two counts of causing her grievous bodily harm with intent.

Sheffield Crown Court was told he is the "only person who could have been responsible" for the injuries.

The toddler was just a few weeks short of her second birthday when she suddenly collapsed in front of Mr Johnson - who claimed they had been playing "high fives" - at her home.

Hospital staff found bruises on her face and body, bleeding to both eyes, bruising and bleeding to the surface of her brain, which was also swollen, the court was told.

Prosecutor David Brooke QC said she had suffered "10 areas of impacts to the head and face", a broken arm and a number of fractures to her spine in the weeks leading up to her death.

He told the jury the injuries were part of a "pattern of behaviour" by Mr Johnson.

Mr Brooke said a pathologist "strongly suspected punching" caused a number of bruises around the little girl's ear.

Jurors heard Mr Johnson was staying with his partner, Erin's mother Kira Tomkins, at the time. The couple also have another daughter together.

Miss Tomkins, then 18, told police Mr Johnson would get angry because Erin would scream when he put a nappy on and get upset when he was around, the court heard.

I am side eyeing the mom if she knew that the child was frustrating the step penis and she had to have him she could have found others to babysit the child and/or change the damn diaper herself.

Some people are just too stupid to be in charge of helpless innocent babies. This twat and her DOTM are prime examples.

A man found guilty of murdering his one-year-old stepdaughter in a "savage" attack has been jailed for life.

Martin Johnson, 20, killed Erin Tomkins at her Sheffield home- causing 10 areas of injury to the head and face.

A post-mortem examination found that Erin, who was a few weeks short of her second birthday, had also suffered broken limbs and four fractures to her spine in the weeks leading up to her death.

Appearing at Sheffield Crown Court, Johnson was found guilty of murder after less than two hours of deliberations, along with two counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

He will have to serve a minimum of 19 years behind bars.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Whittaker, of South Yorkshire Police, said "it was a savage attack" and one of the worst crimes he had dealt with in his 32-year career.

Hopefully, he will serve WAY MORE than 19 years and hopefully beaten to within an inch of his life every day of it.
