21 year old Chelsea Mackay, originally from Ladyville but presently residing in Belize City, is accused of dangerous harm and deadly means of harm after stabbing common-law husband David Castillo on August 13 at her Fabers Road residence.

According to police, the couple’s child had broken a cellular phone case and was punished by Mackay; however, Castillo felt she was being too harsh. He allegedly slapped Mackay and in response she took a knife and stabbed him in the shoulder.

Castillo remains in critical but stable condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The charges are indictable offenses and no plea was taken;

however Mackay, who retained David Morales as counsel, was released on bail of six thousand dollars and the case was adjourned to October 14, 2015.
