KINGSTON, Jamaica – A woman who used a machete to cut her babyfather's lover was fined J$10,000 when she appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
Forty-year-old Lisa Facey pleaded guilty with explanation to a charge of wounding.
Allegations are that the accused woman used a machete to cut the complainant in the vicinity of her left ribcage.
When they appeared in court, Facey said that she went to visit her child's father when she noticed he had company.
"Me have me babyfather, me wash, cook, clean, mi take care of him," Facey told the court.
The complainant told the court that the accused woman opened the window and chucked herself into the bedroom.
"You understand why she was upset?" Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey asked.
"The man is along with the two of us," the complainant replied.
Pusey reiterated the question,"You can understand why she upset?"
"Yeah," the complainant replied.
Pusey reprimanded the accused woman, telling her, "your problem is not with her (complainant), is the gentleman".
Pusey told her that pulling a machete and chopping the complainant would send her to jail.
The accused insisted that she was the one taking care of her babyfather.
"Even if she sleep deh, not even likkle tea she nuh give him," she argued.
Pusey told them that they were too old for this type of behavior.
The magistrate explained to the accused woman that when she is in prison the man would be free.
The accused woman told the court that her child's father did not escape her wrath.
"Me fight him same time too," she explained.
The court erupted with laughter.
"It is going to cost you J$10,000 too," Pusey added.
A fingerprint order was subsequently made.
