(Scroll down for video) A 15-year-old girl was arrested on a charge of murder after luring her boyfriend to a house, where he was beaten, killed and burned, police in Florida said.

Amber Wright of Summerfield, who is now 19 years old, has been convicted of first-degree murder for her role in the killing of 15-year-old Seath Jackson.

Several other people have also been convicted of murder in the case.

23-year-old Michael Bargo has been sentenced to death in connection with the killing, while Kyle Hooper, 21, Justin Soto, 25, and Charlie Ely, 23, were sentenced to serve life in prison.

According to the police investigation, Wright lured Jackson to a house by promising him to rekindle their relationship. Once he arrived, his bones were broken and he was stuffed into a sleeping bag.

He was then dragged to the back yard and set on fire. Text messages presented as evidence in the case showed that Wright told Jackson that the couple could work things.

Jackson responded that he is afraid of being beaten, but he agreed. Wright told her friends that Jackson almost infected her with a sexually transmitted disease while they were dating.

She also alleged that the victim had cheated on her and had been physically abusive.
