The woman who was convicted of masterminding an attack in which a woman threw acid on another woman in Prince George's County in 2010 was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday.

Tamara Jackson, 31, was convicted on multiple charges, including second degree assault, in connection to the March 29, 2010 incident in Oxon Hill. In the incident, prosecutors say she told a co-conspirator, Tikia Anderson, to throw a cup of of an acid-like substance on another person, Katrina Watts, and her 3-year-old daughter.

Anderson pleaded guilty to her role in the crime and was sentenced to 8 years in prison.

Both Watts and her daughter suffered serious burns and permanent injures as a result of the attack.

Prosecutors say the acid-throwing incident stemmed from a feud over a man. According to officials, Jackson's boyfriend had recently broken up with her and began dating Watts.
