Teenager facing jail over attack ‘set up’

Have your say

A 14-year-old girl who “set up” a schoolboy to be stabbed by her boyfriend after a row over football was yesterday told she is facing a custodial sentence.

The girl was found guilty of the manslaughter of Junior Nkwelle, 15, along with her 17-year-old boyfriend.

The pair, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, were remanded in custody at the Old Bailey to be sentenced on April 5. They were found not guilty of murder.

The court heard the girl called her then 16-year-old boyfriend to a housing estate in Brixton, south London, where he killed the keen footballer.
