Charges of Wounding Withdrawn Against Nathalia Wade for Beating Up Husband

Nathalia Wade

Last Friday, thirty-nine year old Keith Staine came to News Five studio with a bruised-up face and forty-five stitches to the head. Staine claimed that his wife, forty-four year old Nathalia Wade, handcuffed him and bound his legs before hitting him multiple times to the head and face. Well today, the Muslim couple appeared in court where Wade was arraigned for wounding and using threatening words against her husband of one year. Staine claimed that the relationship had been violent and asked that she be charged for trying to kill him. But that was only one side of the story and today Wade claimed that she has been a victim of domestic violence and has made at least four complaints to the Domestic Violence Unit. Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser bound Wade and Staine over the peace for one year. As to the criminal charges brought against Wade, Staine appeared in court today to have them withdrawn because he says he is still in love his wife and did not want her to go to jail. After court, Wade spoke to the media.


Nathalia Wade, Charges Withdrawn

“I plan to take whatever hurt I need because I believe that as women we should not go through things like this. Everybody don’t know what happenes behind closed doors. What I can tell you is that god is the one who is supposed to deh by we side. We should trust god but god also asks us to help ourselves.  I realize that god I have to deal with. I gone through a lot and I noh say nothing to anybody. I just stick through it and I just want the abusing to stop, men to stop touching women skin; women supposed to be cherished.”

“How long you been in the relationship?”


Nathalia Wade

“One year. That day, I was helping his mom. He was schizophrenic from he was nineteen years old. But I said, I was already married to him so I say I will try to help him. But during the time, I noh do no talking to him or nothing; I let him do all the talking. He whap mi up, noh allow me to come outside; seal up all my windows with zinc. I was always trying to reach out to his mom who is our leader. Sometime I don’t get through to him and I try to ask for help. I do know that he is sick and I was willing to assist him with his mom. She always asking me to let him take his medication because whenever he takes his medication, he is fine. He is thirty-nine years old. I just want to say that I didn’t want this to come all this way. I was trying…why we can’t try without god. We need to do our part as well. I just want to say that I want the domestic violence to stop. I believe that if you can’t make it together and the first time touch us the other—male or female—you supposed to seek help. I would not say leave each other but seek counseling. They asked us the first time to seek counseling, but he didn’t want…he said, oh they want to get into your business. But I ask him every day; he argues back with me. He always causes a fight when I try to tell him to get help.  But he don’t want.”

    Muslim couple? Now it all makes sense. The violent bloodthirsty ones. How did Belize get to be this way?

    Don’t you miss the good old days when we could walk down any street and Catholics would say hello to their Anglican or Jehovah Witness or Protestant neighbours?

    Then the USA deportations began, and what did it bring Belize? gangsters, drugs, murders, rapes, guns and Muslims.

  5. Annoyed says:

    Obviously Uncle Benji is an IGNORAMOUS!!!

    It is stupid thinking like these that has our country the way we are.

    Have respect for others. Obviously you are not a Christian. If you are, I would dis-fellowship you from my congregation!
