    A woman who filmed her boyfriend dying in a pool of blood and put the video on social media has been jailed for 14 years.

    Fatima Khan, 21, dubbed a “Snapchat queen”, plotted with a love rival to kill Khalid Safi, 18, who she had been seeing for two years.

    Mr Safi was repeatedly stabbed in the chest by Raza Khan in North Acton, London, in December 2016, jurors heard.

    Khan was convicted of manslaughter after a trial at the Old Bailey.

    Mr Khan remains on the run, the Met Police said on Friday.

    Khan, described by her own defence barrister as “Ilford’s Snapchat Queen”, filmed Mr Safi as he lay dying in the street and posted it on the picture-sharing app alongside an offensive message.

    Judge Michael Topolski QC said her actions were “cold and callous”.

    As with all Snapchat videos, the pictures would have been automatically deleted within 24 hours.

    However, one of the group of friends who followed her online posts filmed the message which was used as key evidence in her trial.
