A woman has pleaded guilty to common assault for her part in an attack that left the victim with fractured bones in his face and needing three surgeries.

Jennie Singleton, 33, of Charlottetown appeared in Supreme Court recently for what was to be the start of her trial for a charge of assault causing bodily harm. However, she pleaded guilty instead to common assault.

She will be sentenced May 3.

Joseph Michael Ryan Jadis was sentenced in connection to the attack in early January to 402 days after pleading guilty to four charges that included assault causing bodily harm.

Crown attorney Nathan Beck told the court the victim was living in a motel room and assaulted the victim who went in and out of consciousness.

The court heard the victim opened the door to find Jadis, a woman and several other men there.

Beck said Jadis and the woman went into the room and assaulted the victim who went in and out of consciousness.

The victim alleged that he woke up at one point to the woman spitting on him and telling Jadis to kill him.

Beck said the victim’s injuries included a fracture in the bone around one of his eyes and a fractured nose. The victim spent two weeks in hospital for treatment and recovery.

He has since died, although the court heard his death was unrelated to the assault.
