A female Anchovy Primary teacher, who allegedly mowed down and killed a seven-year-old student while driving on the school compound, had her station bail extended when she appeared in the James Parish Court on Tuesday.

The accused, 32-year-old Kerry-Ann Cunningham, of Mt Carey, St James is facing a charge of causing death by dangerous driving.

When the matter came up for mention before presiding parish judge Sandria Wong-Small, it was put off until Thursday, October 4.

Cunningham was reportedly reversing her car on the school compound about 3:50 pm on Tuesday, June 12, when she lost control of the vehicle and the student, Easton Stapleton Jr, was accidentally hit.

The grade two student was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Cunningham was subsequently charged by the Anchovy police on June 26.
