Woman accused of throwing hot oil on lover gets bail extension

A woman who threw hot oil on her former lover had her bail extended when she appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court last Friday to answer to multiple charges.

She is Tameka Brown, charged with assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, attempted murder, and malicious destruction of property.

Brown did not enter a plea when the matter was called up.

The court was told that the complainant was still in hospital and when asked about his condition, the court heard it was life threatening.

Resident Magistrate Opal Smith informed Brown, who is out on bail, of the developments and ordered that she return to court on May 20 when the matter will again be mentioned.
