A 39-year-old West Ruimveldt, Georgetown woman, who allegedly stabbed her husband in the ribs during a heated argument over his ex-wife, was on Friday arraigned on an attempted murder charge at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The mother of seven, Kendrea Grant, stood before Senior Magistrate Fabayo Azore where the charge stated that on November 12, 2018, at their West Ruimveldt, Georgetown home, with intent to commit murder, she wounded Otis Bailey.
The prosecution is contending that Grant and Bailey were involved in a heated argument over his ex-wife whom he reportedly allowed in their home. The argument escalated and Grant reportedly stabbed Bailey in the ribs. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.
Defence lawyer Stanley Moore in a bail application told the court that his client is a clerk and poses no flight risk.
However, an objection to bail was made by Police Prosecutor Simone Payne, who cited the seriousness of the charge.
Magistrate Azore released the mother of seven on $150,000 bail. The case will continue on December 21.
