Lesbian relationship turns sour

todays courtKerreon Ishane Kelly, a Jamaican national, was remanded to HMP Dodds again today, after presiding judge, Justice Jacqueline Cornelius, ordered a presentencing report of her case.

Kelly, 25, of Barkers Road, Haggatt Hall, St Michael, will return to court on July 14. She is charged with the January 8, 2015 offence of causing serious bodily harm to Tishana Alphonso of the same address.

Kelly pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding and not guilty to causing serious bodily harm with intent to maim, disfigure or disable Alphonso.

The court heard that the two had known each other for three years and were in an intimate “lesbian” relationship for nine months when the incident occurred.

Reading the facts, the prosecutor disclosed that Kelly was preparing a meal of eggs and bacon for herself and the victim in the early hours of the day when the incident occurred. An argument broke out between the two, with Kelly accusing Alphonso of cheating while in the presence of another female known as Nikita.

It was while arguing, Kelly’s statement to police said, that Alphonso approached her with a knife and she responded by dishing “a pot of hot oil” on Alphonso.

It was also revealed that the accused later took to social media showing a pic saying, “this is my cheating a.. girlfriend and this is what you get for cheating”.

According to a doctor’s report, the victim received burns to 30/40 per cent of her body, including her chest, neck, back, hands and feet.

“I did not throw anything on her intentionally,” Kelly told the officer who took her statement on January 2015 after being the subject of a wanted bulletin.

She also said in the sworn statement that “Tishana said that I didn’t have to throw oil on her because she wouldn’t have stabbed me”, while also admitting that she didn’t know the extent of the victim’s injuries until the following day and subsequently posted an apology on Instagram.

While the facts were being read, Kelly sat with her right hand under her chin and at other times when the extent of Alphonso’s injuries were being explained, she covered her face with her hand.

She is not previously known to the court.

      If she don’t support it, she don’t simple, do you support stealing? Do you support murder? No right? But some people feel they should steal to get through in life and murder too.

    The sexual orientation of the accused has no relevance to the seriousness of the offence so does not need to be highlighted.

    If it was a heterosexual couple, the headline would simply state “Relationship turns sour”

    BT – please remember that, the headline merely perpetuates discrimination & prejudice.

    To my knowledge of this case these women are both jamaican. Why not sentence sentence the accused instead of her doing so much time on remand.deport the other once sentance have started , and her helth is stable . then deport Kelly when her time is spent. I find the courts here drag everything way to far along.yet you see the other living life as usual and partying just the same before the incessant send them both bk to they countries when this mess is resolved. I’m not agents gays, males or females. Everyone have they choice of who they want to be with .or how they choose to live there lives. .just speaking out loud.

    let us be “politically correct” , its a “relationship gone sour”. nationality has nothing to do with it. TWO FEMALE PARTNERS APPEAR IN COURT.

    Its about time people in Barbados stop this stupidness, is it going to come to past in bim if people find out the bank manager is gay they are going to stop using the bank, if they find out the pastor is gay are they going to stop praying to God..

    Lots of people is so Christian minded they are so moral , but yet still they go to church and is banging each other husbands and wife’s, big punch up out side church 3 Sunday ago…if the two people were white what would be the outcome , very few people would say anything…

    They don’t parade as gays in Jamaica neither man nor woman. I agre it is their business but violence against anyone should be punished and they should both be deported. Bajans are a still a little too small minded and ignorant to life and enjoy a laugh until it is on their door step.

    It is legally important to state that it is a lesbian relationship because it speaks to the emotional state of the accused and could be a mitigating factor in her defence. It was a crime of passion done in the heat of the moment/ jealous rage.
    As opposed to a cold, pre-meditated act committed by a stranger or casual friend.
    It’s not meant to stigmatize or degrade them and the truth is that most Bajans have always been tolerant of same-sex relationships even if they do not morally agree with them. We’re all human beings.
