Jamaican woman in Antigua-Barbuda on charge of causing grievous bodily harm

A 29 year-old Jamaican woman, accused of  burning her husband's girlfriend with boiling stew, was on Monday remanded to Her Majesty's Prison in Antigua.
A report in the Antigua Observer newspaper says Annalee Jeffrey has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm to the woman.
It is alleged that, on the afternoon of  June 6, the alleged victim was working with the accused woman's husband at an event and was serving the stew from a pot that was on an open fire.
The woman was reportedly grabbed by her hair, fell to the ground and the pot of  stew overturned, as a result of which she was burnt.
The complainant is said to have received first degree superficial burns to her hand and face, and the Jamaican woman was also burnt on her hand.
Mrs Jeffrey appeared before the All Saints Magistrate's Court and it was discovered that her time in Antigua-Barbuda had expired last month.
The magistrate remanded her until Tuesday while she considers how to deal with the matter.
