(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – A Jamaican woman was on Monday remanded in police custody in Antigua and Barbuda after she allegedly burnt her husband’s mistress with goat soup (mannish water) at an event earlier this month.
Annalee Jeffrey, 29, is charged with causing grievous bodily harm.
A report in the Antigua Observer stated that during the Jamaican’s first court appearance at the All Saint’s Magistrate’s Court, it was revealed that her time in the twin-island nation had expired.
The magistrate is to consider how to approach the case considering Jeffrey’s illegal status in the country.
Allegations are that on June 6, the complainant, who now resides with the accused’s husband, was working with the man at a breakfast fete serving goat soup from a pot on an open fire.
Sometime later, the complainant was grabbed by her hair and pulled backwards, resulting in her falling to the ground.
The pot of goat soup also fell off the fire, burning the woman in the process.
The report said the complainant allegedly received “first degree superficial burns to her hand and face”.
Jeffrey also allegedly received burns to her hands during the incident.
She was remanded and is to appear in court later on Tuesday.
