A woman who stabbed a rival over an ongoing Facebook feud has been ordered to perform community service and pay $500 in restitution to her victim.
Keisha Horton, 21, of Coral Harbour, pleaded guilty to minor causing harm when she appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney yesterday.
Horton had a friend lure Kayricka Knowles, 26, to the Mall at Marathon’s food court on February 10 under the guise that she was interested in purchasing costume jewelry.
While Knowles was showing off the jewelry to the prospective customer, Horton emerged and stabbed Knowles in the forehead. The injury was not considered serious.
Prior to the incident, both women had never met; however, they had virtual fights on social media.
Horton took offense to unflattering things that Knowles had posted about her on Facebook.
Knowles had posted that someone ought to shoot Horton and her son and she also made remarks about her health status.
Horton risks jail time if she fails to compensate Knowles and complete 60 hours of community service by April 24.
Roberto Reckley appeared for Horton and Sergeant Claudette McKenzie prosecuted.
