Mother’s charges for stabbing upgraded

7. STABBINGWednesday, September 30th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: Resident of Mahogany Heights, Belize District, Shannon Smith, is now accused of dangerous harm rather than grievous harm in the stabbing of 42 year old Erlin Butler, Sr., which took place in March.

The 24 year old is alleged to have stabbed the older man in the chest during a fight at her residence after Butler visited.

According to a relative of Smith, Butler is obsessed with Smith even though they do not have a relationship and says when he went to Smith’s house she defended herself.

The mother of 3 appeared today before Magistrate La Donna John and was released on the same bail she was given when she first went to court, $1,500, and her case was adjourned until November 23.
