Cuthbert “Mafia” Victory following the attack in 2016. (Photo: CMC)KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC) – A magistrate Monday sentenced a pastor, his wife and daughter to four years in prison after they were found guilty of pouring hot liquid on a man following what they described as a “spiritual warfare” two years ago.Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett imposed the sentence on Nigel Morgan, his wife Althia, and their 23-year-old daughter, Crystal, following the assault on Cuthbert “Mafia” Victory, which left him with burns to his back, shoulders, chest and face.Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delplesche had argued that the trio had planned the assault on Victory on April 9, 2016.A video of the incident, which was widely circulated on social media, showed the older Morgans holding Victory while their daughter pours on him what was later revealed to be a hot liquid. The video was not tendered in evidence, reportedly because police did not secure a deposition from the person who did the recording.In her defence, Crystal Morgan told the court that she was feeling ill and was about to make a cup of tea when she heard noises that suggested that her parents were under attack.“I felt as if my soul left my body,” she told the Kingstown Magistrate Court even as she acknowledged that she could not recall how she left the kitchen on the upper floor of their two-storey house, to the street, where she poured the hot water on the man.She told the court that even up to the point of giving evidence she did not know who it was that she had hurt.In their defence, the older Morgans presented themselves as having been under attack by Victory, a 39-year-old construction worker, who had gone to visit a friend who was the Morgans’ neighbour.However, they admitted in court that they had attempted to use olive oil on the man while, praying for him even though he had not requested any spiritual help.But the state’s main witness, Clint Antoine, who was the Morgans’ neighbour at the time of the incident, told the court that the pastor and his wife, had been engaged in an exchange of words with Victory.He said during the fracas. Morgan placed his hand on the bottle then placed it above Victory’s forehead. The witness said Victory swung his hand and Mrs. Morgan held on to him and they began fighting.Antoine told the court that the trio continued fighting before Victory was subdued by the Morgans and the daughter then poured the contents of a black and silver kettle on him.On their last court appearance on April 13, the Morgans hired their own camera crew to photograph and videotape reporters covering the court case.last_img read more

Syracuse awaits NCAA tournament fate after 4-1 ACC tournament loss to Duke

first_imgSyracuse entered Thursday’s ACC tournament first-round matchup against Duke likely needing a victory to continue its season. Last time the conference foes met, Duke won at J.S. Coyne Stadium. SU failed to record a shot that day for the first time in 13 years.  Within five minutes on Thursday afternoon, Duke scored, and the Orange never recovered. No. 3 Duke (15-4, 5-1 Atlantic Coast) scored two goals in the opening nine minutes, defeating No. 17 Syracuse (8-8, 1-5), 4-1, to advance to the ACC semifinals. Before the game, Syracuse’s seniors, Jamie Martin, Caroline Cady and Roos Weers all stressed the implications of this game in Chapel Hill. All three agreed that a win against Duke, a team safely in the NCAA field, would give them a good chance at the NCAA tournament.All three also agreed that a loss likely meant that Thursday’s game would be the final one of their careers. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We need to focus on getting one more,” Martin said Tuesday. “If we lose Thursday, I think we’re done.”Less than five minutes into the game, Duke’s Caroline Andretta corralled a pass from Erin Scherrer and finished her 12th goal of the season. Scherrer added a goal herself five minutes later to double the Blue Devils’ lead.Duke continued its barrage of shots on goalie Borg van der Velde, until eventually, a third goal came. Sixteen minutes into the second half, Haley Schleicher converted a penalty stroke from a foul right in front of the SU goal.Weers scored a goal of her own from the penalty spot eight minutes later but it was merely a consolation score. On Duke’s 21st and final shot of the game, Rose Tynan capped off the four-goal outburst. The loss means that SU has now conceded at least three goals in its last four games.  Syracuse is now forced to wait. Sunday night at 10 p.m., the NCAA tournament bracket will be revealed. It’s an 18-team field, with 10 automatic qualifiers. SU will have to hope it’s one of the eight at-large teams.

Forest City man charged with threatening people with a rifle

first_imgFOREST CITY — The preliminary hearing has been scheduled for a Forest City man accused of threatening people with a rifle last week. Court documents say three men from Fertile went to the home of 41-year-old Joshua Winders late Thursday afternoon, with two of the men being allowed inside the home with the third waiting in a vehicle. Winders allegedly grabbed a .22-caliber rifle and pointed it at the men inside his home, then followed them outside and fired multiple shots into the ground while yelling at the men to get off of his property, located in the 2000 block of River Road. Winders allegedly threatened to “spray” their vehicle if they did not leave. The men drove away from Winders’ residence, calling 9-1-1, saying they feared for their safety. Winders was later arrested and charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure or provoke fear, possession of a firearm by a felon, and three counts of assault while displaying a dangerous weapon. Winders is due in court for his preliminary hearing this Thursday. If convicted of all the charges, Winders could face up to 21 years in prison.last_img read more
