Laura Wilson, 17, had a brief relationship with Ishaq Hussain, 22, who lived close to her before giving birth to their daughter in June last year.OK, here's where you may need to get a pen and paper and draw some diagrams...
Sheffield Crown Court was told that Hussain failed to acknowledge the child as his own and did not offer any support, leading to friction between Laura, her family and Hussain.
Things came to a head last October when she went to Hussain's house and told his family he was the father of the child, prosecutor Nicholas Campbell QC said.
Hussain and his friend, who also had an affair with her and was said to be her first love, plotted to kill her, it is alleged.
Laura's older sister, Sarah, looked upon Hussain as being 'like her brother' in the mixed ethnicity area where they lived.OK, you may need more paper at this point...
Before the affair, Laura had fallen in love with Asghar and they had a sexual relationship. They resumed the affair after Laura had the baby with Hussain.
Laura struggled at school and played turant, 'but she embraced life with gusto, she was an attractive and popular girl,' Mr Campbell added.*screws up paper and throws it away*
Laura began drinking with Fay Williams had also had a daughter with Hussain. They knew one another before falling pregnant but then they became firm friends.
They realised Hussain would never marry either of them and Laura was only interested in Asghar.
I give up!
