Jail For Teenage Girl Over Death Plot

A teenage girl has been jailed and her sister given a youth rehabilitation order for their part in a plot to kill their 89-year-old grandfather so they could get their hands on his money.

The elderly man, who suffered from dementia and lived with his wife, was attacked with bricks at his bungalow in a village near Winchester, on November 15 last year.

Last month the pensioner's adopted daughter, 49, was jailed for 17 years and her son, aged 19, was given an indeterminate sentence in a young offenders' institution after being found guilty of conspiracy to murder.

The woman's elder daughter, 16, was found guilty of conspiracy to murder and was given a 26-month youth detention order at Winchester Crown Court.

Her younger sister, 14, was given a two-year youth rehabilitation order after she was convicted of wounding with intent but acquitted of the conspiracy charge.

A third girl, the son's 17-year-old girlfriend, was also found guilty of the conspiracy charge and was sentenced to three years' youth detention.
