Lenice Abigail Townsend will remain on remand at Dodds for another 28 days.
The 26-year-old Jamaican, who resided at Sealy Land, Bank Hall, St Michael is accused of causing serious bodily harm to Corey Noel on September 22 with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to do some serious bodily harm to him.
She has been on remand in connection with the charge since October last year.
When she made her appearance before Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes today the prosecution reaffirmed its objections to bail.
Among the objections was that she had given immigration an address when she arrived in the country but failed to give a subsequent address. That led to fears by the prosecution that the accused could be a flight risk.
“I am really sorry about the fact that I did not change my address. I was to be in Christ Church. I am sorting out my papers to stay here and I don’t want that to be tampered with. I love Barbados and I don’t want to be deported back to Jamaica,” said Townsend who pleaded for leniency.
She added: “I am willing to surrender my passport and everything. The guy is willing to drop the case.”
But Chief Weekes informed the accused, “When you come to the place be upfront as to what is going on. When you come to the place you have got to be aboveboard. I can’t help you today.”
Townsend will now make her next appearance before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on February 4.
