A woman has been jailed for nine months for perverting the course of justice over the murder of a 16-year-old boy.

Hani Abou El Kheir was attacked by a group armed with meat cleavers and knives as he walked through Pimlico, London, in January last year.

Donjeta Gashi, 20, of Kentish Town, was convicted at the Old Bailey over paying for a Bristol hotel. She was cleared of a second count of the same charge.

Five men have been found guilty of murdering the teenager.

In January, Ahmed Mikhaimar, 20, Arber Barbatovci, 20, Tarquai Joseph, 19, and a man who cannot be named for legal reasons were all sentenced to a minimum of 26 years in prison.

Craig Boyce, 26, was sentenced to a minimum term of 27 years.

Hani, his girlfriend and a friend were walking through the Churchill Gardens Estate, in Pimlico, on 27 January last year when a group of up to 10 men, armed and masking their faces, spotted them.

The trio were chased through an alleyway before the gang caught up with Hani in Lupus Street, where he was stabbed more than 20 times in a "frenzied ambush", police said.
