A jealous woman who connived with her married boyfriend to kill the man's wife has been sentenced to 30 years in jail.
Antoinette Steven, a 30-year-old Massachusetts woman, will spend the next 30 years in jail after she was convicted of plotting with her boyfriend to murder the man's wife as the couple was walking with their toddler son on a New Jersey street.
The sentencing was part of a plea bargain Steven entered after she pleaded guilty to murder and testified against the boyfriend, Kashif Parvaiz.
The 29-year-old Parvaiz was found guilty of murder and other charges and was sentenced month to life in prison plus an extra 10 years.
According to prosecutors, the murder occurred while Parvaiz and his 27-year-old wife, Nazish Noorani, walked with their young son in Boonton, a suburb about 25 miles west of New York City.
Stephen who was having an affair with Parvaiz at the time admitted firing the fatal shots, which fortunately, did not hit the boy.
Stephen said she used two guns to kill Noorani, and wound Parvaiz to try to make the shooting look like a bias attack or robbery, acting on Parvaiz's orders
