Scarlet Blake, a sick killer, was given a minimum 24-year prison sentence in the United Kingdom on Monday for livestreaming the killing of a cat before killing 30-year-old Jorge Martin Carreno because her American online girlfriend "said it'd be hot," the New York Post reported.

Judge Martin Chamberlain told the Oxford Crown Court during Blake's sentence that she had an "obsession with harm and death" and that the Netflix video "Don't F-k With Cats" had given her the idea to carry out the horrific killings.

Blake, who is a transgender, had recorded herself skinning and chopping up her neighbour's cat while it was still alive and then throwing its lifeless carcass into a blender. 

The footage had the New Order song "True Faith" playing in the background as an homage to the Netflix documentary, the court heard.

Then, months later, Blake lured Carreno, a Spanish national who worked at a nearby BMW factory, to a secluded river after he got separated from his friends during a night out.

Then she strangled him, threw his body into the river, and gave him a beating on the head with a bottle of vodka.

According to what her trial heard, Blake committed horrifying atrocities to win over Ashlynn Bell, her online girlfriend from the United States.

In addition to the minimum 24-year jail sentence for Carreno's murder, Blake was handed two concurrent sentences of four months and two months for unnecessary suffering to an animal and criminal damage.
