Jamaica News, April 6, 2018 – Crown to Make Decision on Wounding Case

St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – The St. James Parish court is contemplating what course to take in the case against Marcia McIntosh, who is facing a wounding charge, following the death of the complainant.

McIntosh appeared before Parish Judge Sandria Wong-Small on Thursday on a charge of unlawful wounding committed against Salva-Lee Ewan.

Details of the allegations were not read out in court, but a medical certificate revealed that Ewan received three lacerations to the scalp as well as to her elbow allegedly inflicted by McIntosh.

The court was also told then that the matter was previously sent to the St. James Circuit Court but Ewan died while the matter was before that court.

On Thursday, the judge enquired as to whether or not the complainant’s death had anything to do with the injuries sustained but was told that it had nothing to do with it.

The matter was subsequently set for mention on May 17 and McIntosh’s bail was extended.
