Deadly domestic dispute; villager stabbed by her ex

Belize’s reputation as one of the most violent countries in the region can’t be fully attributed to urban violence. In Cotton Tree Village, on the outskirts of Belmopan, a woman almost lost her life during a domestic violence dispute.  Twenty-one year old Lillian Lemmott is tonight recovering from multiple stab wounds after being viciously attacked by her ex-common-law husband over the weekend.  Lemmott was at her father’s house on Friday night along with a group of friends when she was brutally assaulted by her forty-two year old ex-husband.  According to her younger sister, Lillian was visiting her dad that evening to pick up some food when she was dragged into a nearby bush and repeatedly stabbed.  Upon hearing her screams for help, her friends quickly responded and were able to rescue her from the attack.  Lemmott was injured to various parts of her body, including her chin which sustained two stabs that exited below her tongue.  In February, Lemmott was granted a restraining order against her common-law, following a six year relationship that ended sour.  According to the sibling, Lemmott received a series of threatening text messages in which she was told that she would be killed.  Meanwhile, her ex-husband remains at large.

    Hmm — six year relationship means her ex began as a child molester.

    There’s no difference in evil intent between murder and attempted murder, he’s just lucky God protected her life.

    Maybe the law won’t allow the court to stretch his neck, but he should be left to die in prison. The Jewel doesn’t need such dangerous people walking its streets.

    This woman was in a relationship for 6 years with this man. She is now 21 years old … that means she was 15 years old when it began. The man is 42 years old now … what the heck was a 15 year old doing with a 36 yr old man???? Where were her frigging parents??? Now she is dead … I say find him, crack him neck and send her parents to jail for child neglect!

    Oh please! You need to understand what you read. The young woman is not dead. Still, I agree with you, what were her parents thinking when she was a 15 year old with a guy that more than doubled her age? Parents, we need to pay attention…this was a pedophile case, please don’t get distracted or wowed because an older guy may have more money to shower on your daughters.

    I hope this guy gets arrested and rots in jail.

    Yes, where is his picture?
