Woman tried to kill boyfriend after fight over ex

-court hears

Kendrea Grant

A clerk was yesterday granted her release on $150,000 bail after she was charged with the attempted murder of her boyfriend, who police say she stabbed after a fight over his former partner.

Kendrea Grant was read the charge when she appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore in Georgetown.

It is alleged that on November 12th, at West Ruimveldt, with intent to commit murder, Grant wounded Otis Bailey.

Grant, 39, of 521 West Ruimveldt, was not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge.

Police prosecutor Simone Payne objected to bail being granted, citing the seriousness of the crime.

The court heard that on the day in question, Grant started an argument with Bailey over his former partner visiting him. As a result of the argument, the prosecutor noted, a scuffle ensued between the two. Grant allegedly then went into the kitchen, armed herself with a knife and returned and stabbed Bailey in the region of his ribs.

Attorney Stanley Moore, who represented Grant, later described the case as a crime of passion. He, however, noted that there was a triangular affair between Grant, Bailey and his former partner.

Contrary to the prosecutor’s facts, the attorney stated that Bailey was choking his client and she stabbed him as she feared for her life.

Magistrate Azore later asked Grant to post $150,000 for her release and adjourned the matter until December 21st.
