District constable charged after allegedly trying to kill children's mom

A district constable was last week hauled before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court for reportedly attempting to kill the mother of his children by stabbing her multiple times during a dispute at their home in St Thomas.

The 30-year-old law enforcer, Chevaughn Wisdom of Bull Bay in St Thomas, who is assigned to the Kingston Eastern Police Division, is also accused of inflicting wounds to himself during the altercation in April.

According to the police report, on April 27 between 11:00 pm and midnight the 23-year-old complainant was at a party in Bull Bay when Wisdom, who had been home with the children, decided to visit the party.

Following Wisdom's arrival at the party an argument developed between him and the complainant.

On reaching their home, allegations are that while the complainant was inside Wisdom used a kinfe to stab her all over her body and also used the weapon to injure himself.

Both were taken to the Princess Margaret Hospital where the the complainant was admitted for treatment and the matter was reported to the police.

However, futher reports are that on May 1th while the complainant was still undergoing treatment, she gave the police a further statement indicating that she did not wish to pursue the matter.

The file was prepared and sent to the director of public prosecutions who later ruled that Wisdom should be charged with wounding with intent to murder.

Wisdom was, as result, arrested and charged on Wednesday and brought before the parish court where he was offered bail in the sum of $300,000 and warned not to interfere with the complainant, following a bail application by his lawyer Peter Champagnie.
