A Jamaican woman was deported yesterday after confessing that she beat her ex-girlfriend earlier this week.
As a result, Kimone Alecia Morgan, 23, spent less than half of the stay of six months granted to her on August 30 when she arrived in Barbados.
Morgan, who was staying at #67 Hothersal Turning, St Michael, pleaded guilty to assaulting Gina Shepherd on November 8, causing her actual bodily harm, and threatening the complainant by telling her: “I gine stab and kill you ****” on that same date.
The woman went before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court this morning, where Sergeant Janice Ifill revealed that the two women were involved in an intimate relationship which ended just two weeks ago.
On the mentioned date, Morgan invited Shepherd to go out with her and other friends but the complainant declined. The accused became annoyed and began beating Shepherd about the body, causing bruising to the woman’s forearm and back.
Morgan later sent threatening words to Shepherd via Whatsapp. The matter was reported to police.
Once the court determined that the complainant did not wish to be compensated, Morgan was reprimanded and discharged and left the courtroom accompanied by Immigration officials.
