December 02, 2015

A young man who slit his ex girlfriend’s neck but claimed he was “playing” pleaded guilty with explanation in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's (RM) court yesterday.

Ramon Harris was charged with unlawful wounding.

He explained, “A game we did a play your honour. A so we normally play.”

However, the 16-year-old complainant countered his argument.

“We neva did a play. Mi go ova the yard and see him so me turn back fi leave and him come block me path, back me up inna the wall and put the knife a me neck mek it cut me!” she said.

Senior RM Judith Pusey chided the young man, telling him that he should respect the fact that the relationship has ended and leave the young girl alone.

“Me neva waa kill her or anything your honour. Me apologise to her and her mother and father already,” Harris claimed.

Pusey ordered Harris to stay in custody until today when he will be sentenced.

A fingerprint order was also made.
