JADA Pierre – the 22-year-old Siparia nurse who was beaten on the head with a hammer – has been discharged from hospital and is resting at home.
She told police that last Friday, an ex-boyfriend hit her several times with a hammer after she refused to reconcile with him.
Gerron Akiba Matthews of New City, Fyzabad, has since been charged and remains in custody after being denied bail.
Pierre had several scans and surgery at the San Fernando General Hospital. She had several fractures and lacerations to the head, but no brain injuries.
Relatives told Newsday she was discharged on Wednesday and is doing well.
