The Questelles resident appeared before Senior Magistrate Browne yesterday and pleaded guilty to unlawfully and maliciously wounding Sylvina Baptiste of Lower Questelles, on February 5, at Lower Questelles.

Davis, a carpenter, also pleaded guilty to assaulting his nephews, Jerome and Jayden Job, and to damaging a sliding window valued at $400, the property of Michelle Davis of Questelles.

The court heard that Baptiste was at home when she saw Davis walking through her yard. She called out to him and told him not to walk through her property.

Davis then picked up a concrete block and threw it at Baptiste, striking her in the head.

She sustained two puncture wounds to her forehead.

Later that same day, Michelle Davis, who is the defendant’s sister, was at home when she heard her children crying. When she went outside, she saw Peter beating them. After she attempted to intercede, Peter took a stone and threw it, resulting in a broken window.

Davis was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison by Senior Magistrate Donald Browne until sentencing on Monday, February 13.
