A female police officer who is accused of chopping her female lover with a machete following claims that the complainant was having an affair with a man has been remanded in court until April 19.
Sharnalee Lindsay, who is a member of the Island Special Constabulary Force is charged with wounding with intent.
According to reports, on March 27, Lindsay and the complainant left home together and went to a location on Marcus Garvey Drive in the Corporate Area where Lindsay lured the complainant into bushes. It is further being alleged that Lindsay used a machete to chop the complainant all over her body.
In the complainants statement, she explained that she and the accused were in a very close relationship but she told the defendant that she was now with a male which angered the defendant.
The complainant's lawyers dismissed the allegations that the females were lovers. He also argued that on the day of the incident, it was the complainant who lured his client into bushes where she and a third party, who is now on the run, attacked Lindsay.
