Friday, February 09, 2018

ST THOMAS, Jamaica — The St Thomas woman who was seen beating her daughter with a machete in a video circulating on social media last year was today sentenced to three years probation with parental counselling and anger management.

Doreen Dyer, 44, pleaded guilty to cruelty to a child when she appeared in the St Thomas Parish Court a short while ago.

The video, that went viral, showed Dyer, dressed only in her underwear, hitting the girl with what appears to be a machete, while using expletives.

More information later.
