Three women remanded in wounding case
KINGSTON, Jamaica - Three women who police say stabbed another woman several times, puncturing her lungs, were on Friday remanded into custody when they appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.
The women, Latisha Williams, Nickeisha Morrison and Shannon McGowan along with three others reportedly approached the complainant while she was walking home and stabbed her in her shoulder, back and chest.
On Friday when the matter was raised, lawyers representing the accused women said that their clients were not involved in the incident.
“So no one stabbed this woman then,” Magistrate Lorna Shelly Williams remarked.
The investigating officer told the court that the other three women were on the run and that the matter was still being investigated.
As a result the magistrate asked the lawyers to postpone their bail applications and remanded the women into custody.
The matter will be mentioned on October 26.
