Armed with a knife, a woman set out to kill a man whom she trusted, but whom she suspected of indecently assaulting her young daughter.
Overcome with emotion as she stood in the dock of the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court yesterday, the tearful 35-year-old mother of five did not hold back when she was told by Magistrate Douglas Frederick the stab wounds she inflicted could have been fatal.
