Embattled machete-wielding mother Doreen Dyer, who has been charged with ‘cruely of Child’ is feeling stressed out and depressed though happy to be released from lockup on bail. She was released on Tuesday afternoon after being bailed by her cousin.

“I feel good to be out (of lock-up), my neighbours dem come round and ah try cheer me up and talk to me. But I am going to lie down soon, mi stress out and mi head ah hurt me, but mi a clean up mi house and then go lie down,” she told Loop yesterday aftrenoon.

“It’s true, everything she say is true. Mi work hard to send them to school, sometimes mi go hungry to make sure dem alright. Right now, mi inna one $5,000 debt right before mi go jail fi mek sure dem go school and have something. Mi owe a man $700 fi some banana and plantain so when me go work them can fry and eat while I am working. Yesterday, mi friend boil up some soup for me, but now mi don’t have nothing to eat,” she adds.

Miss Dyer also revealed that she is to pay her lawyer $50,000 to start working on her court case which begins on Monday.
