Jamaican woman now facing murder charge

A 26-year-old Jamaican woman who was charged last month in connection with the stabbing death of a fellow countrywoman will spend more time at HMP Dodds after her serious bodily harm charge was upgraded to murder.

Tedesha Ann-Juliet Haynes, who resided at Bay Street, St Michael made her second appearance in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Friday after spending her first 28 days on remand at HMP Dodds.

It is now alleged that she murdered Shockaya Boyd on April 28.

Boyd, 34, was pronounced dead at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital after being stabbed while on Bay Street, St Michael around 2:30 a.m.

Haynes was not required to plead to the indictable charge when it was read to her by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

She had made her first court appearance back on April 29, when she was charged with serious bodily harm, to which she was also not required to plead.

The Jamaican lost her freedom when the prosecutor, Station Sergeant Neville Reid, objected to bail on the grounds that she is a non-national and that the charge against her was likely to be upgraded, based on the outcome of an autopsy on Boyd’s body.

Haynes is expected to make her third appearance in the No. 2 Bridgetown court on June 23.
