Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

The St Catherine woman who allegedly beat a teacher who she claimed had been having an affair with her man was granted bail in the sum of $150,000 when she appeared in court yesterday.

The woman, who is from Waterford in Portmore, St Catherine, was granted bail after her lawyer Christopher Townsend made a successful bail application before the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court.

He told the court that his client and the complainant shared a common interest which resulted in a fight.

Townsend told the court his client is not a flight risk and will appear for her trial.

Reports are that last Monday, the accused went to the school where the complainant works. She accused her of sleeping with her lover twice and tried to hide it.

The accused then started to rain blows on the complainant and damaged her wristwatch in the process.

A report was subsequently made to the police, and an investigation launched.

The accused was subsequently arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property and assault occasioning bodily harm.
