Four women in court following stabbing incident at party







A total of four females, two sisters and two friends who are believed to be party crashers were before the court to answer to criminal charges.  The arrest of the women resulted from a stabbing incident which took place on Saturday, July 21, 2013 during a party at the home of Saysha Moody.   At the end of the altercation between the females, 5 women were injured and they all had to seek medical attention at the KHMH.  Yesterday, 18 year old Saysha Moody  was the first to be arraigned for common assault and wounding upon Kendra Smith.   Moody pleaded not guilty to both charges and she was offered bail in the sum of $1,000 plus one surety of the amount which she met.  Today, Smith and Brown who were acting disorderly while in the holding cell at the Magistrate’s Court, had to be escorted back to the Queen Street Police Station and it was not until this morning that the other two female party crashers were arraigned in court. 19 year old  Lyvette Brown, and 21-year-old Kendra Smith were both read three criminal offenses:  one count each of wounding, one count each of grievous harm and one count each of use of deadly means of harm with a deadly instrument.  The two pleaded not guilty to the charges and since there was no objection to bail, they were offered bail in the sum of $3,000 each plus one surety of the same amount with conditions. Their case was adjourned for August 29, 2013. The 16-year-old minor who was charged with wounding upon Kendra Smith appeared this morning in the Belize City Family Court where she pleaded not guilty and is out on bail.
