From the BBC:
A teenager created an “elaborate matrix of deceit” on the internet to persuade another boy he had fallen in love with to murder him, a court has heard.
The 14-year-old boy, dubbed Boy B in court, created a series of fictional characters in chatrooms, one of which ordered Boy A to murder him.
Boy A, a 15-year-old, stabbed Boy B twice, but he did not die, Manchester Crown Court heard.
Boy A admitted attempted murder and Boy B has admitted incitement to murder.
