A teenager who killed a six-year-old girl when he took part in a horrific firebombing of her Birmingham home in an "honour attack" has been sent to a young offenders institution for eight years.
Daryll Tuzzio, 18, had previously been found guilty following a trial of the manslaughter of Alisha Begum and a charge of arson with intent to endanger life.
In passing sentence Mr Justice Field said Tuzzio had taken part in a "wicked plan" which had been hatched in order to terrorise one of the victim's brothers who had formed a relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
He said: "On the night in question you allowed yourself to be recruited by a friend, Mohammed Foaz Ahmed, to join in to a wicked plan to set the Begum family house on fire."
He said Alisha's brother Abdul Hamid had formed an entirely innocent relationship with 16-year-old Meheran Khanum, Ahmed's sister, meeting her twice and speaking to her on the telephone.
He went on: "In the view of Foaz Ahmed, Abdul Hamid had to be taught a lesson. He had to be terrorised by a fire set at night in the family house to punish him for his defiance and to force him never again to have contact with Meheran so that Ahmed would have no difficulty in marrying Meheran off to someone of their choice.
"It must be clearly understood that such actions cannot and will not be tolerated in this country."
The judge said that Tuzzio had bought the petrol that was used in the attack on the property in Bayswater Road, Aston, in March this year, that he had gone to the house and that he was aware there were people inside.
Birmingham Crown Court had heard that before the firebombing a threatening call was made to Mr Hamid's home, which he shared with his brothers and sisters, warning him to keep away from the girl.
Adrian Redgrave QC, prosecuting, said on the following day, shortly before midnight, the front door of the property was smashed open and a man, wearing a balaclava, sprayed petrol in the hallway before putting a match to it.
The fire spread upstairs and family members were forced to jump from the house but Alisha was trapped inside.
Tuzzio (18), of Sandringham Road, Perry Barr, who had denied the charges, claimed he had nothing to do with the blaze.
The court was told two others, Mohammed Foaz Ahmed and a close friend, Jabed Ali, were alleged to have been involved in the attack and are believed to be in Bangladesh.
Balbir Singh, for Tuzzio, said he had been in a car outside at the time of the firebombing and went on: "It was a plan conceived by others, older and more sophisticated.
"He is young, naive and impressionable."
After the sentencing Alisha's elder brother, Abdul Mumin, said: "My sister was murdered in the most horrible way.
"This man has got eight years but my sister has got no more years."
Detective Sergeant Stuart Kidd, one of the investigating officers, said: "Today's sentencing of Daryll Tuzzio completed the first stage of this investigation and in no sense can it compensate fro the loss of a young child, a sister or family member.
"There can never be honour in murder. This investigation continues and will do so until all the persons responsible for this crime are brought to justice."
