Snapchat addict arranged boyfriend's murder then posted video of him dying in the street with ca

A Snapchat addict who posted a video of her dying boyfriend on the app has been found guilty of manslaughter.

Fatima Khan, 20, is accused of plotting with a rival for her affections to kill Afghan asylum seeker Khalid Safi, 18, who she had been seeing for two years.

Khan was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter at the Old Bailey by a jury of seven women and four men after deliberating for 18 hours and eight minutes.

Raza Khan is still wanted by police.

Judge Michael Topolksi, QC, remanded Fatima Khan in custody ahead of sentence on July 30.

Mr Safi was repeatedly stabbed in the chest by Raza Khan in North Acton, north London, on the evening of December 1 2016, jurors were told.

Rather than calling for an ambulance, Fatima Khan allegedly filmed him as he lay dying in the street.

She posted the footage on Snapchat with the caption, 'This is what happens when you f*** with me,' the Old Bailey heard.

Khan, from Ilford, north London, later told police she was addicted to Snapchat.

Jurors were shown the disturbing footage as well as CCTV images allegedly showing the fatal fight between Mr Safi and 19-year-old Raza Khan.

Prosecutor Kate Bex QC said the two men had fought over Fatima Khan a few years earlier, during which Mr Safi was hurt.

And in the run-up to the killing, Fatima Khan had been in daily contact with Raza Khan via Snapchat, jurors heard.

During the trial, Khan claimed she was beaten by him in the past.

While Fatima Khan admitted her behaviour was 'disgusting', she said she was 'thinking about what had happened to me previously when Khalid punched me'.

Giving evidence, she said: 'I remember seeing like a tip of something sharp. I was panicking.'

After the jury returned their verdict Ms Bex told them Khan has eight previous convictions for 15 offences including robbery, dishonesty and public order offences dating back to 2011 when she was a schoolgirl.

Many of those were committed while on bail for other offences, the court heard.

She was handed a string of community rehabilitation orders.

Judge Michael Topolski QC told Khan she can expect 'a very significant sentence of imprisonment' for the 'grave crime' when she is sentenced next Monday (30).

For their hard work on the 'difficult and really troubling' case he exempted the jurors from further court duty for the next ten years.

Khan was remanded in custody ahead of sentence at 10am on Monday.

Her defence counsel, Kerim Fuad QC, asked: 'Is your phone out at this stage?'

'Yes,' she replied.

Fatima Khan claimed Mr Safi had hit her in the past and that another man had been convicted of attacking her.

Mr Fuad asked: 'When you were walking along there, what were you thinking?'

'I was thinking about what had happened to me previously when Khalid punched me,' she replied.

Mr Fuad: 'Looking back now, taking these images and posting them, which you later did, tell the jury what you feel about that now.'

Through tears Fatima Khan said: 'It is so shameful. It's disgusting. It wasn't even directed at Khalid - the message wasn't for him.

'I was just tired of it, getting assaulted before and him punching me again. I just wrote that so that people didn't try to assault me or harrass me.'

Mr Safi, a refugee from Afghanistan who spent time in the Calais 'Jungle' before settling in the UK five years ago, suffered a stab wound to the heart and died outside the cafe.

Mr Fuad continued: 'You then walked away, what state did you think Khalid was in?'

Fatima Khan replied: 'I wasn't sure - I saw there was some blood, it was on the side of his head and chin and there was lots of blood on the floor.'

She told the court that she saw the feathers from Safi's puffa jacket flying around outside the Costa.

My view: I hope she's sentenced to life without parole, her callousness is beyond belief, she's an evil person. She used her beauty to entice the boy and he got killed because of this wicked 24 carat witch, who refused to call for an ambulance, it's so sad and her Snapchat addict claim is so strange.
