Mother Seen Beating Child With ‘Machete’ In Viral Video Charged

The woman who has been in police custody for beating her 12 year-old daughter with a machete has been charged.

Doreen Dyer, 44, of St. Thomas has been charged with cruelty to a child.

She has been offered bail and is to appear before the St. Thomas parish court on October 11.

Opposition Spokesman on Youth Damion Crawford, said the mother should also be seen as a victim.

Mr. Crawford, who visited the community on Monday, said the mother is a victim of Jamaica’s culture of physical punishment and the lack of both the existence and knowledge of adequate support services for parenting.

He is recommending that the mother be made to participate in mandatory parenting training for no less than one hundred hours, while efforts are made to engineer behaviour modification for the child among other things.
