Munns was for 12 months and Kinnane had a 12-month term suspended for two years and was given 200 hours of community service.

Det Con Melanie Knight, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridge and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit said: “I hope that Bradshaw spends her time behind bars reflecting on the severity of her actions. Her actions as Jamil lay dead were disgusting.”

Mr Sarki suffered a fatal stab wound to the heart and two stab wounds to his arm. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Daniel Frazer-Traille, 35, of Jasmine Gardens, Hatfield, was jailed for life for murder. Vinnie Bradshaw and Keith Coventry, 35, of The Close, Chingford, were convicted of manslaughter.
