Myrie not guilty
HARTFORD, Connecticut – Shanique Myrie was found not guilty of beating her now estranged husband, Troy Pusey, by a court in Harford, Maryland, in the United States on Thursday.
However, Pusey claimed that she used obeah to win the case.
Myrie, 28, became a household name after winning a high-profile case against Barbados in 2011. She faced the court in Hartford, Maryland, after she was charged with assaulting her husband earlier this year.
“He said I chased him down with knife, and I kicked him in his groin. That I punched him on his hand and that he did surgery on, and stuff like that,” Myrie told the STAR.
“He went on the stand and told a bag of lies, contradicting himself, and the judge saw him for the liar that he is.”
However, Pusey claimed that he presented substantial evidence in court and was baffled by the outcome.
“I had several [pieces of] evidence – the doctor evidence, the testimonial, and the therapy that showed that there was bruises from somebody who hit me. There was all that evidence and none of that evidence prevailed in court,” Pusey lamented. “I guess the voodoo man said rest the case.”
When the STAR put those allegations to Myrie, she denounced them as ridiculous, saying her husband is “a special kind of stupid”.
“What him a talk ’bout, obeah? I don’t deal with that. I’m blessed, so tell him don’t get it twisted. Nothing to me like my father God. I pray that God has mercy on him,” Myrie said.
Myrie and Pusey got married in 2013, after meeting on the popular social media site Facebook. However, the marriage went sour and Myrie walked out.
Since then, the 28-year-old Myrie said her estranged husband has been trying to wreak havoc in her life by defaming her.
Myrie said she initially considered suing her husband, but has now decided against it, saying she just wanted to move on with her life.
A divorce is in order for the two and Myrie is relieved at the prospects.
