Woman conspires with lover to kill her husband

Karlita-Desean-Phillips-CopyA 41-YEAR-OLD woman has been sentenced to life in jail for organizing the murder of her husband with her 17-year-old lover.

Ironically, Karlita Desean Phillips and her 17-year-old boyfriend, Tavirous Dequan Settles, were arrested, charged and sentenced for the murder of her brother-in-law, instead of her husband, reports Metro UK.

Phillips of South Carolina, had mandated Settles to murder her estranged husband, but in a case of mistaken identity, Settles managed to kill 31-year-old Jamil Phillips, her husband’s younger brother.

Prosecutor David Stumbo said that Phillips was sentenced after she was convicted of accessory before the fact of murder and soliciting a minor to commit a felony.

She was sentenced to life in prison while the teenager was sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Investigators said that the teenager had ambushed Jamil Phillips while he was in front of his home in Abbeville.

Settles told the court that he and Karlita were in a sexual relationship and that she hired him to kill her estranged husband.
