One of two women who was charged with assault after fighting over the removal of a pair of slippers from a home was fined yesterday in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.

She pleaded guilty to the offence.
"We have been friends for a long time, and they came by the house and took a slippers I bought my daughter and left," Robinson said.
The court heard that the complainant was spotted in downtown Kingston and confronted about the slippers.
