A mother who decided the way to reprimand her 16 and 9 year old children by heating a spoon and burning them was remanded when she appeared in the Spanish Town RM Court yesterday.

The accused, Kerry-Ann Reid told RM Horace Mitchell that the spoon was in the hot pot on the stove, and she had been having problems with the teenager who was constantly giving trouble.

However this explanation didn't go down well with the judge when the investigating officer told the court that the teen had five burn marks while the smaller infant had three burn marks. The majority of the burns were to the face.

"Madam, you have no right to handle your children in that manner even if they are giving trouble. The law doesn't allow it. You are charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm," RM Mitchell said.

"You had a bail offer of $50,000 with 1-3 sureties so it will remain. You can get up to three persons to bail you."

The father of both children who was also present in court was asked by the judge if he would bail her, to which he responded with a loud "no".


Ms. Reid will have her case mentioned again on September 1, 2015.
