Belize City woman menaced former partner with knife after comment to kids

By Aaron Humes: A Belize City woman pleaded guilty to stabbing her ex-common-law husband at his workplace with a kitchen knife.

31-year-old Stephanie Michelle Wagner, a Domestic of Mile 2 1/2 George Price Highway, appeared before Chief Magistrate Jayani Wegodapola where she pleaded guilty to the charge of aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument, to wit, a kitchen knife upon Glenroy Fitzgibbon on Wednesday, February 21, at Western Dairies located at Mile 1 1/2 Phillip Goldson Highway.

Wagner was fined $300 and cost of court due by April 2, in default, four months imprisonment.

Fitzgibbon told the police officer on duty at the Domestic Violence Unit, Eastern Division, that he was at work when a white Chevrolet Tahoe vehicle parked in front of the building. His ex-common-law wife exited the car, approached, and told him, “What you tell deh pickney them?” According to Fitzgibbon, Wagner was holding an object in her right hand, which appeared to be a kitchen knife.

Fitzgibbon told police that he believed Wagner was upset because he told their children they might be expecting another sibling.

Fitzgibbon said Wagner approached him with the knife and began to swing it in his direction and he grabbed her hand; a man who was inside the vehicle exited the vehicle and walked up to him and punched him in his face.

The court warned Wagner to leave her ex alone and not to get arrested and charged again for any other criminal matter, or it may not go in her favor, given this very serious offense for which she was lucky to have been fined and not sent to jail.
