The hit bore chilling echoes of the killer’s own attack on Soham sicko Huntley, who he stabbed in the neck before asking guards: “Is he dead? I hope so.”

He added: “I hope I have killed him. I have been planning it for weeks. I slit Huntley’s throat for the crimes he has committed.”

Fowkes was already serving a life sentence for a series of violent armed robberies when he slashed Huntley with a DIY shank made by melting a razor blade onto plastic cutlery at HMP Frankland, in Durham, in 2010.

The attack left the double child killer with a seven-inch gaping hole in his neck.

Fowkes was later jailed for life for attempted murder, with a minimum tariff of 20 years.

He also admitted to the manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility of child killer Colin Hatch.

He took him hostage and strangled in him in a cell.

Fowkes said he spent weeks planning both attacks.

Known as ‘Dib-Dob’ to friends, crack addict Fowkes was serving a life sentence with a minimum 12-year tariff for a catalogue of violent knifepoint robberies in Northampton.

Suspect Kevin McCarthy, 49, will appear at court today charged with trying to kill fellow inmate Fowkes on October 2, 2016.
