Stabbing by Knitting Needle in Domestic Quarrel

Jennifer Garcia

An argument in downtown Belize City ending in an apparent stabbing on Sunday morning landed sixty-four-year-old businesswoman Jennifer Garcia in court. Garcia is accused of stabbing Ingrid McKay with a twelve-inch knitting needle after a quarrel over McKay’s partner Conrad Jackson while at the Battlefield Park. Garcia allegedly told McKay that Jackson wanted a relationship with her, which McKay took offense to. Police later detained Garcia and proceeded with a charge of wounding made by McKay. In court Garcia attempted to plead guilty but she disputed the facts of the case and claimed she was upset by McKay’s name-calling during the argument. Magistrate Michelle Trapp entered an equivocal plea of not guilty and set bail at five hundred dollars which she met. She is due back in court on March fifteenth when a date for trial will be agreed.
