A teenager who planned to torture and kill a casual fling because he was sleeping around with other women has been jailed.

Sophie George, then 18, had put together a murder kit packed with bleach, duct tape, forensic clothing, bin liners and lighter fuel before arranging to meet her victim in 2019, a court heard.

George had attempted to get Adam Yiosese to drive towards a park before pulling a large serrated knife on him, but he managed to escape and call 999.

Police later searched the teenager's house in Brighton, East Sussex, and found she had written up plans of how to kidnap and murder the bloke, along with plans for how to start a new life and change her identity.

The scheme included forcing Mr Yiosese to walk to a grave George had dug as well as torturing him until he gave up the names of women he had slept with.

Police also discovered an application to change her name and forms for a new passport.

Speaking at Hove Crown Court, a judge told George she posed a danger to anyone she might meet romantically before sending her to prison.

Judge Christine Henson said: "It seems from all I have read in this case, that you were fixated and consumed by revenge as you considered the victim had been seeing other women.

"You went to meticulous lengths to plan your attack. It is clear you knew what you were doing was wrong and your planning included evading responsibility and detection."

Judge Henson added that George was considered a "high risk" and that the "extreme nature" of her response to Mr Yiosese, who has been left with flashbacks and difficulty trusting friends after the incident, was "abnormal".

The court heard that George and Mr Yiosese were in the car together and were headed to a park after George had picked up two carrier bags filled with her "murder and torture kit".

Mr Yiosese had changed his mind and intended to go and get food instead, to which George grabbed the steering wheel to force him to change direction, and then pulled a knife on him and tried to stab him.

He cut his hand deflecting the blow, and fled the vehicle, The Sun reported.

George, who initially denied two charges of attempted murder and one of possessing an offensive weapon but pleaded guilty in May last year, was sentenced to 13 years in prison, of which two must be served in custody, with a four-year extended licence.
