It could be the season for it, or just the realities of a point in time, but in the long past, alleged acts of extreme violence by women were rarities.
Recently in Jamaica, it was a case of a group of women being accused of having committed the gun murder of an individual in August Town, St Andrew.
Now it is the turn of a Jamaican woman being charged with two very violent acts in Barbados.
Kimone Tasheeka Carty, 24, a dancer, is charged with arson and serious bodily harm.
Reports were that Carty destroyed with fire a man’s house in Brighton, St Michael.
After being listed as a wanted person, Carty surrendered on Sunday, and was charged for the alleged offences.
She was remanded in custody when she appeared in a magistrate’s court on Wednesday.
