A teen who persuaded her boyfriend to kill his ex-girlfriend has been jailed for 16 years.

Sarah Mohamed urged Rhett Carty-Shaw, 17, to kill his ex after she became “incensed” and “humiliated” when she discovered that he had secretly been seeing her.

Carty-Shaw used a kitchen knife to repeatedly stab Imam Nasir at her home in Openshaw, Manchester, in May, Greater Manchester Police said on Friday.

Nasir recovered from her injuries in hospital.

Carty-Shaw has also been jailed for 16 years.

Mohamed was sentenced for intentionally encouraging someone to commit murder, while Carty-Shaw was sentenced for attempted murder and possessing an offensive weapon, according to the force.

Detective Inspector Jennifer Tattersall said: “The defendants devised a devious plan to murder the victim, with the boy seeing fit to arm himself with a knife and inflict life-threatening wounds to the victim.

“The girl was taken to hospital in a serious condition, and has been deeply affected by the attack.

“I want to commend the bravery and courage that she has shown in coming forward and assisting the police during the investigation.

“Both defendants deserve the sentences that they have received and they now have time to contemplate their senseless actions behind bars.”
