A man who unlawfully and maliciously wounded his sister earlier this year, has been told not to venture near her home.
Sherwin MacDonald Shepherd, 32, had pleaded guilty on an earlier occasion to wounding his sibling Janelle Pinder and was remanded at the time. Both he and the complainant resided at the same house at the time of the incident, at Fairfield Cross Road, St Michael. But today, both Shepherd and his mother assured the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court that he would be residing elsewhere.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick placed him on a bond to keep the peace for six months. If Shepherd breaches that, he will either have to pay $1,500 forthwith or spend a month in jail.
The court heard that he and his sister had an argument on January 18 this year.
Shepherd then went outside for a stick and hit Pinder on her right shoulder with it.The two fought and after they were parted, Shepherd went for a cutlass and rushed at his sister with it.
Pinder was cut in the head and the wound required five stitches.
