Mother of 5 charged for attempting to murder reputed husband

Mavva Kenswell, a mother of five, on Friday appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer to the charge of attempted murder.
Kenswell, a farmer of Kumaka Water Front, Mabaruma, Region One (Barima-Waini) was not required to plead to the charge which alleged that on March 17, 2019, at Kamaka Water Front, with intent to commit murder, she wounded Winston Lewis.
Facts presented in court detailed that the victim was under the influence of alcohol when the couple got into a heated argument at their home.
The woman, who became annoyed, armed herself with a cutlass and dealt her reputed husband several chops about his body.
Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield did not object to bail but asked that conditions be attached. As such, Kenswell was released on her own recognisance and was ordered to report to the Kumaka Police Station every Friday. She was also instructed to seek counselling.
The case was transferred to the Kamarang Magistrate’s Court for June 17, 2019.
