Ongoing Family Feud in Delray Beach Leads to Flying Fists, Arrests
Authorities say a family feud in Delray Beach erupted into fists flying and eventually, a stop at the Palm Beach County Jail.Four sisters, identified as 29-year-old Karrissa Murray, 28-year-old Katrina Murray, 28; 32-year-old Kayla Murray, and 31-year-old Krishaundra Murray, are charged with misdemeanor battery.They were booked into jail on Monday morning and left later that day on their own recognizance, records show.According to a Delray Beach police report, the women’s cousin, 30-year-old Amber Jackson, was visiting her mother on June 7.Jackson was in the home’s driveway when the four sisters appeared.The report states Jackson told police that Karrissa spat in her face and then began fighting her.She went on to say that Krishaundra joined in and had a bottle which she never swung, although she did pull off Jackson’s wig.The other two sisters allegedly also joined in, by punching Jackson in the face.Paramedics treated her but did not transport her to a hospital, says the report.It adds that Jackson, a hair stylist who lives in Lake Worth Beach, explained to officers that she and the sisters “have had history in the past where they have not gotten along.”Courtesy: Palm Beach County Sheriff’s OfficeMeanwhile, Karrissa Murray told The Palm Beach Post this week that she and her sisters are planning to hire a lawyer and press charges against their cousin.“She was coming at me with a bottle and my sisters stopped her and she started fighting my sister,” Karrissa said. “Everything she said in the police report was a lie.”Records show that each of the four sisters has several entries in the Palm Beach County Circuit Court docket, on charges that range from traffic violations and evictions to domestic violence orders and child support issues.Katrina and Krishaundra have no felony arrests.Two years ago, Karrissa was sentenced to one day behind bars for a misdemeanor charge of public assistance fraud under $200 that had been reduced from a felony.In 2013, Kayla was sentenced to several months in jail for repeatedly driving with a suspended or revoked license. She was also charged with criminal use of ID and defrauding a health provider that same year. The charges were later dropped, court records show.Jackson also has a record. She was charged with felony-aggravated battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and child abuse seven years ago.The first charge was reduced to a misdemeanor, and Jackson elected pre-trial intervention. The last two charges against her were dropped.
