The case against Shaunagh Downing, the Ammanford woman charged with stabbing Daniel Jonas following an altercation in the town centre in July 2022, has been adjourned after one of the jurors became unwell during the trial.

Both the Prosecution and the defence lawyers concluded giving their evidence earlier this morning (Friday), and the jury was asked to retire to consider its verdict.

However just after 3pm this afternoon, Judge Huw Rees informed the court that the matter had to be adjourned following confirmation that one of the jurors had become unwell.


Downing, 22, faces two charges of wounding Daniel Jonas on the morning of Sunday, July 3 outside his home near Dol y Dderwen, Ammanford and a further charge of possessing an offensive weapon, namely a knife, in a public place.

She denies both charges.

Downing will return to Swansea Crown Court on Monday morning when the jury is expected to return to deliver its verdict.
