A FULHAM woman has been found guilty of arranging for her ex-fiancé to be shot after he ended the relationship.
Samantha Cadge, of Peabody Estate, in Fulham Palace Road, was furious after the relationship ended in October 2009 and starting plotting an attack against him.
She linked up with friend Shane Worrall, 30, of Sulgrave Road, Hammersmith, and the pair gave pictures of their target and agreed to pay 24-year-old Marwan Goodridge, of Acton, to shoot him.
The victim, in his 20s and who had previously lived with the 26-year-old and her family, was leaving for work at 5.45am on November 25 last year when he was shot in the spine before the gunman stood over him and shot him in the upper thigh outside his home in Hendon, north-west London.
He was rushed to an east London hospital but, despite a number of operations and months of treatment, he has been left confined to a wheelchair.
Investigating police stumbled across the sawn-off shotgun used in the attack when they raided Goodridge's flat for a drugs search two weeks later.
They found the victim's details and photograph and clothing worn by the gunman and officers were quickly able to link the gunman to Cadge and Worrall with the pair's fingerprints on a handwritten note in the flat.
Cadge was convicted of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent to do serious injury at Kingston Crown Court on December 8.
Worrall (pictured) and Goodridge had previously admitted the same charge at a hearing in November and all three will be sentenced on January 11 next year.
Detective inspector Sally Jeffrey, of the Trident non-fatal shootings team, said: “The victim received life-changing injuries from this shooting which was arranged simply as revenge for the breakdown of a long-standing relationship.
“All three defendants played their part in arranging for the victim to be shot, with the ultimate aim that he be caused serious injury.
“Londoners should be reassured that Trident uses its expertise to thoroughly investigate all non-fatal shootings in the capital and people who commit these crimes should expect a substantial prison sentence.”
