A 39-year-old mother of seven who allegedly stabbed her lover was yesterday slapped with an attempted murder charge. She allegedly did this after she saw him in the company of his ex-wife.
Kendrea Grant of 521 West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, appeared before Senior Magistrate Fabayo Azore who read the charge to her.
It is alleged that on November 12, last, at West Ruimveldt, with intent to commit murder, Grant wounded Otis Bailey, her lover.
She was not required to plead to the indictable charge after it was read to her in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Attorney-at-law Stanley Moore who represented Grant told the court that his client was merely trying to defend herself after she was attacked by the victim’s ex-wife.
However, Police Prosecutor Simone Payne made serious objections to bail being granted to Grant, citing the serious nature of the offence and the penalty that the charge attracts.
According to information, on the day in question, Grant and Bailey had a misunderstanding after she saw his ex-wife at their home when she did not approve her visiting. The argument soon after escalated into a scuffle, and Grant went into the kitchen and armed herself with a knife and dealt him a stab to his chest.
Bailey fell to the ground, was picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was admitted and underwent surgery.
The Magistrate, after listening to both sides, overruled the Prosecutor’s objection and released Grant on $150,000 bail.
The defendant was instructed to make her next court appearance on December 21 when she will appear before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for reassignment.
