A Barbadian, a Jamaican and a Trinidadian, who were apparently involved in a love triangle, have ended up before the law courts.
The Jamaican, 25-year-old Odelva Rose Nathan, appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today charged with wounding Trinidadian Ornella Hall and damaging a motorcar belonging to Barbadian Samuel Boyce on July 18.
After she pleaded guilty to the charge the court heard that Boyce was involved in a relationship with both women.
The two women apparently crossed paths and there were discussions about becoming roommates.
However, around 3:30 p.m. on the aforementioned date Nathan called Hall to ask whether she could come over and look at the apartment. Hall agreed, but when Nathan arrived, Boyce was in Hall’s bedroom, triggering a fight between the two women in which Hall was injured.
Boyce later attempted to leave the scene, but Nathan launched a stone at his car, damaging a front indicator.
Today, both women were in court.
However, the matter was adjourned until tomorrow when Boyce is expected to appear.
The issue of compensation will be discussed then as Hall is expected to leave the country on Sunday.
In the meantime, Nathan, who is represented by attorney-at-law Angella Mitchell-Gittens, was granted bail and her passport was handed over to the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court.
