Sydney Mines Woman Charged In Death of Former Partner
Regional Police say a Sydney Mines woman was run over by her former partner in a fatal car-pedestrian incident last week.
28 year-old Dana Marie Jessome was taken to the Regional Hospital following the incident on Oxford Avenue in Sydney Mines on Friday morning, and was later airlifted to hospital in Halifax where she was pronounced dead.
36-year-old Kimberly Ann O’Dea appeared in court for arraignment yesterday on counts of second degree murder and criminal negligence causing death in the case.
O’Dea and Jessome had previously been in a relationship, though, at the time of her death, Jessome was under a court order not to have any contact with O’Dea.
O’Dea is now on remand while she awaits a bail hearing on August 2nd.
