A U.K. woman, who created a "murder toolkit" as part of a plot to kill her ex-boyfriend, has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison.

Sophie George, 20, was sentenced to 13-and-a-half years in prison at Lewes Crown Court after pleading guilty to attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, the Evening Standard reported.

George was accused of creating a "meticulous" to-do list alongside the toolkit to carry out the heinous crime, according to Sussex Live.

The 23-year-old victim from Brighton, East Sussex, had arranged to be picked up by George on Oct. 10, 2020. George, then 18, had reportedly insisted on driving to a separate location where she collected her two filled shopping bags.

As they continued to drive, "George became insistent they drive to a nearby park and on several occasions grabbed the wheel," a Sussex police spokesperson told the outlet,

When the victim resisted, George reportedly pulled out a knife from her shopping bag and threatened the man with it.

A struggle then ensued between the duo, following which George and the victim left the van and fought in the street. The man also managed to throw the knife into a bush, Sussex Live reported. George then bit the man's finger as he called the emergency number. A witness at the spot also called the cops, the spokesperson said.

The officers arrested George from the spot, and found "sinister" content inside her bag. The cops said the bag consisted of "protective clothing, cleaning equipment such as bleach, duct tape and a Stanley knife – all linked to plans to kidnap, murder and ultimately cover up her crimes."

A subsequent search at George's residence yielded a to-do list displaying plans like "drive to gravesite," and "walk him to site, kill and bury," according to Sky News.

"This was a cold, premeditated plan to kidnap, torture and murder an innocent man, with clear steps to then cover up the crime," detective superintendent Jon Hull told Sky News.

"I am in no doubt that George would have followed through with her hugely disturbing 'to-do list' were it not for the victim overpowering her and the prompt response of our officers to bring her into custody. I would like to thank the victim for his support in this investigation, the member of the public who called 999 and everyone involved - particularly Detective Paul Thomas who was in charge of the investigation - for helping to take a dangerous individual off the streets," he added.
