Anti-Christ lit husband on fire and now committed to stand trial for murder

Lavern "Anti-Christ" Longsworth

Lavern Longsworth, also known as Anti-Christ, is facing a murder charge tonight. On July fifteenth, 2010, during a heated argument at her home on Castle Street, Longsworth threw kerosene on David White, her common-law husband and set him on fire. Initially, the now single mother of three faced an attempted murder charge, but since White passed away at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, his mother Yvonne Thompson, has been knocking on many doors, including the Director of Public Prosecution’s office for the charge to be upgraded. This morning before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer, Longsworth did not object to the case being sent to the Supreme Court for her trial to be heard in the June session. Because the matter took time to reach the court, there have been allegations by Thompson that Magistrate Frazer may have been friends with Anti-Christ.  Frazer took the opportunity to publically and formally inform Thompson that Longsworth has never been in her employment. Interviews that Longsworth did with the media were entered into evidence by the prosecution.  The following is an interview with Longsworth after White passed away. We warn viewers that the following is graphic as it was alleged that someone threw acid in Longworth’s face, however, she denied the incident on camera.

“There were some rumors that somebody may have beaten your face. What happened?”

“David has passed away and more than likely the charge is going to be changed, there is a possibility you could face a murder charge or a manslaughter charge. How are you going to handle this?”

    Just because Miss Thompson is persistent is not a good enough reason to let her have her way. Despite the death of her abusive son, someone still managed to beat up Lavern after his family threatened her. Dickey, help a sister out.

  2. Justice says:

    Poor laverne, She is the victim. At least she got rid of a scum. the mother should be ashamed knowing how her son was. She should move on and allow Laverne to live a more peaceful life. Look at how she has been taken advantage of even after the scum’s death! If they can allow all those useless murderers to get off she should get off as her case is clearly self defense.

  3. jose says:

    ill tell you this !@#$ if it was barrow friend or a big fish or somebody that has money or a goog position they would had never got charge at all ok , lavern defended herself and for doing so she is facing merder charge thats crazy that dpp has to go back from where she comes from thats stupidness

  4. eyes on Belize says:

    I know antichrist personally, and anybody who knows her knows she is the sweetest person. I know she got pushed to do what she did. Regardless of what happened, I know as her friend she is remorseful and want to put this behind her. But living in Belize that will be difficult, because people would want to kill her for the fame and the title gun man.

  5. MADDYVANDIJK/DEREALIST says:

    Lavern did the right thing when she set the !@#$%^ on fire, she sure got my vote. C’mon Lavern, the bloody marks on your face clearly indicates that someone battered you, violently. Amnesia? Seek justice.

    I hope that she will be charged with a lesser charge if any at all, her no good man abused her, and now the court system is replaced by her no-good man.

    The mother of David White need to back off, because her son was just like her, soul–less.

  6. vigilante justice 316 says:

    This is what happen when domestic violence get out of control. This man bring in the knife and the gasoline to intimidate this woman but that day he was the one to get his last deserts! I bet he neva think she would turn the tables on him. This is self defense and any time she would have gotten should be listed as time served for all the @$$ licking she tek from that now dead scum of the earth!
