The six-year-old son of accused cop killer Donna Lyn Lesmond is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 in an ongoing attempt by the Crown to sufficiently prove the case of murder against his mother.

This will be a closed session to facilitate the presence of the child who is the prosecution’s star witness.

Donna Lyn is accused of shooting her husband, Special Police Constable Lucan Lesmond with his occupational firearm at about 5 a.m. on Sept. 2, 2012 at their apartment in La Toc, close to the Millenium Highway.

The couple’s son was at home at the time of the shooting.

The post mortem revealed that the lawman died from hemorrhagic shock as a result of a gunshot wound to the brain.

Neighbours told reporters after the incident that they have witnessed fights and quarrels between the couple.

  1. @ justice. I never commented that the wife of the deceased was right, really? And u are correct, the child may have remembered what happend but not in it's entirety. I pose this question to u justice. Do u think that a 6yr old child should be put on trial to recollect the HANUS act which his mother committed apon his/her father? Don't u think that this experience has already taken it's toll on the child? And anyone who commits a crime should pay for it whether u are rich or poor, especialy murder! And the fact is, the woman never denied shooting her husband! So why is it necessary for the child to be on the stand? Too say why she did it? Smh...

  4. Why should a child at such a tender age, be put in a situation which might scar him for the rest of his life? The authorities must weigh their options to deter this minor from testifying against his mother. After-all, his mother is the only parent he has left. Why would his mother deny the shooting anyway? Do u think the child at 6yrs old, remembered about the circumstances which occurred 7 to 8 months ago? Do u really want that minor to say "my mummy shoot my daddy"
