Stitch someone up as in he is gonna stitch her up for the murder.
Here is an entry from the Cambridge Dictionary:
stitch sb up
— phrasal verb with stitch uk /stɪtʃ/ us /stɪtʃ/ verb
- to deliberately make someone look guilty of doing something that they did not do:
He claims he was stitched up by the police.
Is there any verb that can be used in this context? Since this phrasal verb is only used in the UK, what is its American counterpart?
