By Aaron Humes: A brother ended up stabbing his sister during a family dispute, allegedly over a card game that went sour involving four dollars which the brother claim his sister owed him, but which she refused to pay.

Arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today was 47-year-old Kendrick Emmanuel Gordon Sr., an electrician and a resident of corner Lakeview and Logwood Streets, Belize City.

This morning Gordon Sr. appeared unrepresented before the Chief Magistrate, Jayani Wegodapola, where he was read two criminal offenses of wounding and aggravated assault with a knife upon his sister, Dana Gordon.

The incident occurred on Sunday, November 5, at their family yard. According to Gordon, they were gambling and when his sister won, and since he claim his sister owed him money, he told her to just let them quit and so he won’t pay for his common-law wife who was also playing in the game. He claims she got upset and broke up the game by taking away the deck of cards and picking up a beer bottle at him. Gordon claimed he faked coming at her just to frighten her with the knife, but ending up nicking her with the knife.

Gordon pleaded not guilty and despite the prosecution’s objections, the Chief Magistrate offered bail to Gordon Sr., in the sum of $1,000 plus one surety of the same amount.

Conditions to his bail is that Gordon Sr, is not to contact his sister or any other prosecution witnesses; he is not to be arrested and charge with any offenses while out on bail, and he was bound over to keep the peace with his sister while the matter is still before the court and he must be on good behavior or he will go to jail for 6 months.

Gordon’s next court date is January 9, 2024.
