The St Thomas woman who was seen in a video on social media beating her 12-year-old daughter with what appeared to be a machete, will not be able to have her teenage daughters back under her roof until they are adults.
Doreen Dyer, 44, was back in court in St Thomas on Thursday trying to regain custody of her daughters.
Senior Parish Judge Fiona Feare-Gregory ruled that the twin girls, who are now 13-years-old, will remain in the custody of their aunt until 2023 when they will be 18-years-old.
The judge has indicated, however, that Miss Dyer will be able to see the children on weekends in the presence of their legal guardian.
Miss Dyer is not happy with the decision of the judge but has accepted it.
“Me cyaan feel good, me feel upset; but me cyaan do nothing,” she expressed.
Earlier this month, Miss Dyer appeared in Court where she was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to get parental counseling as well as attend anger management classes.
