Tehran, Iran, Dec. 27 – Iran’s State Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence for a teenage woman accused of murdering another woman despite her repeatedly denying that she had committed the crime, according to a wire report from the country’s State Security Forces (SSF).

The 19-year-old woman, only identified by her first name Del-Ara, was accused of stabbing to death a relative in the year 2003 when she was 17 years old.

Del-Ara denies she committed the murder, insisting that she had originally taken responsibility for her boyfriend’s crime after he had told her that girls who are minors could not receive the death sentence.

Upon learning that her boyfriend, Amir-Hossein, had lied to her, she withdrew her statement to the SSF.

According to Del-Ara’s account, the pair had planned to rob her father’s cousin. Amir-Hossein had asked her to bring a knife which she did since she was under the influence of drugs given to her by Amir-Hossein at the time. He then used the knife to repeatedly stab the victim to death.

The report said that Amir-Hossein had accepted the charge of assisting in a murder and his sentence of 10 years behind bars.
