A six man three man jury has found Christyn Alphonse of Massacre guilty by a majority of 7 to 2.

Alphonse was on trial for an incident in 2014, where she was alleged to have thrown a chemical, alkaline, to the eye of her niece Florence St Jean.
The accused will remain on bail of $15,000 as defense attorney Wayne Norde asked the court not to keep her in custody.

In the meantime a social inquiry evaluation will be conducted on the accused.
The state’s case was led by Ann Reviere, while the accused was represented by Wayne Norde and Gina Abraham.
