Woman charged, remanded for attempted murder of male roommate


A 34-year-housewife was on Friday released on $150,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for attempting to murder her male roommate.

Sabrina Bethune, 34 of Evans Street, Charlestown appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

She was not required to plead to the charge which alleged that on September 12 she wounded Linden Davidson with intent to commit murder.

Police Prosecutor Deniro Jones told the court that Bethune and Davidson lived in the same house.

On September 12, Davidson was standing along Evans Street, when he was allegedly attacked by Bethune with a piece of wood.

Davidson reported the matter to the police and upon his return home, he was ambushed from behind by Bethune, who was armed with a glass bottle.

It is alleged that the bottle broke during the assault and she stabbed Davidson in the neck with it.

The injured man was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he spent three days receiving treatment.

Davidson told the court that due to the injuries he received, he has lost hearing in his left ear and has other injuries to his vocal cord.

Bethune’s attorney, Ronald Daniels, told the court that the parties had an alternation during which the victim fell on some glass bottle which caused him to receive the alleged injuries.

The mother of three was released on $150,000 bail and her matter was adjourned until September 22.

The Chief Magistrate also ordered Bethune to move out of the premises and to keep away from the victim.
