A jury has found Trevor Creft guilty of attempting to murder his ex-common-law wife, Tricia Anthony, in spite of her refusal to testify against him.

Mitigation and sentencing has been reserved for April 13.

The guilty verdict was handed down by the mixed jury, in the matter which was heard before Justice Maria Wilson in the San Fernando Third Criminal Court.

The jury deliberated for approximately one hour before before arriving at their decision on Wednesday.

Creft was charged for the June 19,  2009 incident, in which Anthony claimed he attacked her with a seven-inch knife, which resulted in her receiving injuries across her throat, plus the lost use of her fingers to her right hand. She also sustained lacerations to her chest.

However, when she was called to stand to give her testimony against him, Anthony said she could not recall the incident and no longer wished to pursue the matter. She said she depended on Creft for financial support for their son.

Justice Wilson informed her that was not her decision to make and subsequently deemed her a hostile witness.

Anthony receives a disability grant because of the injury to her right hand which left her unable to move her fingers.
