she assaulted Evette Moore, after she enquired about the allegation that she injected her two children with insulin. The children remained hospitalised up to Monday, Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry heard, when the case was called at the Georgetown Magis-trates’ Courts.

Police Prosecutor Vernette Pindar objected to bail when the charge was read. Pindar added that there is the likelihood of more charges being laid against the woman.

De Jonge will make her next court appearance today, at the Christianburg Magistrate’s Court in Linden.
