Cop testifies in child burning case

A mother charged with burning her nine-year-year old daughter was back in court yesterday as her trial continued before Magistrate Geeta Chandan Edmond.

Patricia Pashor of lot 15 Norton Street, was charged in January 2013 with inflicting grievous bodily harm on her daughter.

Accord-ing to Williams, she observed burnt mark scars on the cheeks, by the mouth and on the arms of the child. She recorded her findings and obtain-ed a statement from the child which she affixed her signature to also.

When the trial continues on April 22, Pashor will lead her defence.
