JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a South Florida teen has been arrested for ordering her brother to kill her boyfriend before he carried out the attack.

U.S. Marshals arrested 16-year-old Shanovia Mack at Jupiter High School last Thursday in the slaying of Vladimir Valcourt.

Authorities say after the two got into an argument Sept. 6 she called on her brother, Adrian Leebrent Hunter, to kill Valcourt. Investigators say Hunter was beating a friend of Valcourt's with a gun when it went off and struck Valcourt.
