A woman who seduced an 18-year-old man into the woods in Maryland with the promise of sex, so that members of the MS-13 gang members could kill him, was sentenced to 40 years behind bars on Tuesday.

Judge Anne K. Albright issued a life sentence to now 20-year-old Vanesa E. Alvarado, with all suspended except 40 years, her attorney, Timothy Clarke, told the New York Daily News.

In 2016, Alvarado helped plot the brutal killing of Cristian Villagran-Morales, a landscaper from Guatemala.

Morales believed he was going to have sex with Alvarado. However, he was stabbed 153 times by the MS-13 members.

Villagran-Morales was suspected of being part of a rival gang, even though relatives deny this allegation.

Alvarado pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and conspiring to commit first-degree murder.

During the sentencing in Montgomery Circuit Court, Judge Albright described the assault as “utterly brutal.”

Clarke had asked the judge for a more lenient sentence of 25 years.

He indicated that Alvarado “regrets her role in this event and is remorseful.” He further added that she has two children who live with her parents.

“Some day in the next couple of years when there is no big crowd, I’ll see if I can get the sentence reduced,” he noted.

Alvarado remained silent during her hearing, according to local media reports.

The mother of the victim called the killers “horrible people” who “shouldn’t be in this country.”

Four others were also charged in the murder.

One of the four pleaded guilty this month, and charges against a second were dismissed. Trials are still pending for two others.
