Woman kills ‘abusive’ lover at home

HammerOfJusticeBKingston, Jamaica — A woman, charged in the stabbing death of her spouse, was offered $300,000 bail when she appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court Wednesday.

Attorney David Clarke told the court during a bail application that his client‎ Norbia Allen was in an abusive relationship for many years and that she was fearful of the deceased, Patrick Coombs.

Reports are that both parties had a dispute during which the deceased hit Allen in the face. She retaliated by pulling a knife and stabbing her lover in the chest.

Coombs later died at hospital.

Allen is to return to court December 10 for mention.
