WESTERN BUREAU:A St James man, who admitted to beating his babymother during an argument and then leaving the area, was remanded when he appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nigel Campbell, of a Norwood address, pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding committed against Krishna Stennett.

It is alleged that on October 4, 2013, Campbell punched Stennett in the face, causing a cut. Campbell was reportedly taken into police custody on June 18, 2014.

"Why did you punch her, sir?" presiding magistrate Carolyn Tie asked Campbell.

"Things got out of hand, and I am sorry ... . She (Stennett) brought my son to me. We had some little argument. I touched her, she bit me, and I thumped her," said Campbell.

"Where were you from October?" Tie inquired.

"I was in Maroon Town," said Campbell.

Stennett told the court that she wanted to live in peace with Campbell.

"I just want him (Campbell) to stop interfere with me and to have a normal friends relationship. I don't want him to go to prison because he is my son's father," said Stennett.

Tie subsequently ordered Campbell to be taken back into police custody and set the case for sentencing on June 27.
