    Glad that got this creep. I wish Dog had found him first though.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Jonathan Koppenhaver, AKA War Machine, must stay in jail until he faces two attempted murder charges, a judge just decided. Koppenhaver also asked to take a polygraph, but the judge refused.

    In court Wednesday, defense lawyer Brandon Sua tried to argue that Koppenhaver never intended to kill Mackinday or Thomas, and asked District Judge Elissa Cadish to throw out those charges. But the judge said she believed there was enough circumstantial evidence to show Koppenhaver’s intent.

    Jurors will hear evidence that a mixed martial arts fighter known as War Machine and his girlfriend had discussed a rape fantasy before she was beaten and sexually assaulted in 2014.

    District Judge Elissa Cadish made the ruling Thursday after hearing testimony from the former girlfriend. The case is set for trial next month...

    “I did actually ask him to play out a rape fantasy one time,” she said, “but it never came to fruition.”

    Mackinday called the idea a personal “role play” and “fetish” in which a “very specific set of guidelines and rules would be set down and laid out before the acts are actually done, for safety reasons and consent reasons.”

    Jury ends day mulling MMA fighter-porn star case in Vegas

    http://lancasteronline.com/news/nati...6fb183bc1.html

    A jury in Las Vegas spent a full day deliberating Friday whether the former mixed martial arts fighter named War Machine is guilty of charges that could get him life in prison in an attack on his porn star ex-girlfriend and her male friend in August 2014.

    Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver could face life in prison if he's found guilty of the top charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and sexual assault in the violence that jurors were told left C M and C T bloodied and injured.

    But those are just some of the 34 charges the state court jury is considering.
    Koppenhaver did not testify during his two-week trial.

    M, 24, spent eight hours on the witness stand, telling the jury she was beaten and raped by Koppenhaver in the months before his confrontation with her and T.

    T testified that he suffered a broken nose, dislocated shoulder, scrapes, bruises and bite marks in a bedroom brawl with Koppenhaver.

    The jury saw photos of M. with a broken nose, missing teeth, fractured eye socket and leg injuries, and she testified that she also suffered a lacerated liver.

    Deliberations resume Monday.

    Verdicts came in this afternoon. Guilty on 29 out of 34 counts. Jury deadlocked in attempted murder charges. More at link below:

    After following this case since it broke, I am half content. This individual is an animal and belongs in prison. Christy was a terrific witness, and I wish them the very very best as she moves forward as an advocate for DV victims.
    Don't take yourself so seriously... nobody else does.

    Ex-MMA fighter War Machine sentenced for beating, raping ex-girlfriend Christy Mack

    LAS VEGAS
    The former mixed martial arts fighter known as War Machine was sentenced Monday to 36 years to life in Nevada state prison for kidnapping, beating and sexually assaulting his porn actress ex-girlfriend and attacking her male friend at her Las Vegas home in 2014.

    Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, 35, offered an apology full of self-loathing during his sentencing on 29 felony and misdemeanor charges in the attacks on Christy Mack and Corey Thomas. He called himself a “very lost, very empty person” who hated his aggressive impulses and “should have killed myself by now.”
