On Monday, a man was sent to His Majesty’s Prison to spend the Carnival season for beating his ex-girlfriend but he may get more prison time for an outburst he made during court.
A 27-year-old man admitted to beating his ex-partner and threatening her.
The incident occurred on June 12 when he visited the woman’s home and they got into a heated argument about infidelity.
He slapped her with the back of his hand causing her to fall to the ground and then continued to beat her with his fist while she laid there.
Her screams caused a neighbor to come to her rescue and the men left the scene.
But later that day he returned and the woman attempted to leave in her vehicle but before she could do so he opened the car door, punched her in her head and threatened to kill her if he has any other man.
The victim reported the matter to the police who investigated and then charged the man on June 30.
The woman came to court on Monday and in the absence of a medical form explained the court that she now has difficulties hearing out of one ear.
The defendant tried to defend himself by saying “This lady is a criminal, she is evil.”
“She found out that I got someone else pregnant and she threw her phone in my mouth,” he claimed.
The woman denied the allegation and the man was then sent to prison for two months.
But on his way out of the docket he turned to the woman and said, “You happy now? You ruined my life!”
He was immediately sent back into the docket and told he is being held in contempt and will be sentenced on Wednesday.
