The case of assault and violating a domestic violence restraining order against Kaunapawa Helvi Crowley was postponed to June 20 in the Windhoek Magistrate's Court on Monday.
Helvi Crowley (31) allegedly brutalised her husband, David Crowley (59), a businessman from England, in their Ludwigsdorf home on October 15 last year with an aluminium door handle. She faces one charge of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
She was granted bail of N$5 000 on November 17 last year and the bail was also extended to 20 June. She was cautioned not to interfere with State witnesses, especially her husband Crowley, who was the victim. Her husband testified during last year's bail hearing that on October 15, Helvi arrived at the house in violation of the court-issued restraining order and attacked.
She allegedly attacked him with an aluminium door handle and then used a golf club, he testified. During the hearing, details about the Crowley marriage were disclosed. Helvi was reportedly already married, but did not inform Crowley about her marital status when she married him. He only found out after he discovered a marriage certificate in his office.
Helvi allegedly married a Lebanese national in 2005.
Jan Wessels, Helvi's legal representative said the injuries that David Crowley sustained were less compared to the ones that his client Helvi sustained. She allegedly sustained the injuries when her husband restrained her.
Crowley admitted that before the attack he spent some nights in different hotels with a girlfriend. He testified that this was because he and his wife only had sex twice in a period of six months.
