By Breaking Belize News Staff: An 84-year-old Jamaican national was convicted in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court this week after hitting his 81-year-old ex-common law wife with his walking stick.

Ezrom Lightbody was charged with a single count of wounding. His ex-common law wife testified that Lightbody was at her home while she was packing items in a box and asked him to help her move the box because it was heavy. She said he refused and replied with obscenities so she told him that he would have to leave if he didn’t want to help.

That’s when she said he took the walking stick and hit her with it causing an injury.

In his defense, Lightbody argued that it was his ex-common law wife that first pulled knives and a stick at him, and he hit her in self-defense.

After considering the evidence the Magistrate found Liughtbody guilty and placed him on a one-year suspended sentence. This means that Lightbody will not be sent to prison but if he gets into any problems with the law within the next six months, he will go to jail for a year.
